About Me

My photo
North Somerset, United Kingdom
My parents were worried when I ran around with scissors – now I play with fire and (intentionally) break glass! Based in the beautiful South West of England, close to the sea and often the scene of beautiful sunsets, I am inspired by the countryside around. Working with sea glass collected from remote beaches, soda lime glass from Murano, Italy, Europe, USA and beyond, I create artisan beads, for use in my own jewellery or for you to enjoy in your own creations. But I couldn’t stop there; continuing the theme from round rods to flat sheets, mostly from the USA, I break large sheets of transparent, opaque, multi-coloured and dichroic glass into much smaller pieces to make a kiln-formed range of bright, colourful jewellery and home decoration. Each piece I make is individually designed around the shape, size and beauty of the materials and intended to be unique, wearable, usable and affordable. All my glass work is kiln annealed for strength and durability and designed to give pleasure for years to come.

Do you need a new project?

More impulse buys from someone who is ideas rich but time poor! I have listed these books in my Folksy shop, desperately needing new homes. Both books are new, unused and in pristine condition so if not for yourself, are suitable to give as gifts.

Nuno Felt by Liz Clay

Making vintage bags and purses by Emma Brennan

Also available:

The Sewing Book by Alison Smith

Create Your Own Greetings Cards & Gift Wrap by Priscilla Hauser

Craft & Art - The Business by Elizabeth White

If buying more than one book, let me know as it may be possible to come up with a cheaper postage rate.
