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.

Blue Box Studio on Facebook

Well, we did it. Finally! At last we are on Facebook with a page highlighting what's going on at Blue Box Studio. To find me you can become a 'fan', the more the merrier, by clicking on the "Become a fan" button in the right hand column; or you can use the address ~ http://www.facebook.com/blueboxstudiouk ~ or by clicking here.

Thanks to all my friends, old and new who have helped me get this up and running; I needed a bit of help (oh, alright, a lot of help!) to get some things to work as I expected.

You can read my blog through my fan page, see what's newly listed in my shops, check out my Etsy shop - it has it's own tab and lots more.

As I get to grips with this there will no doubt be more tweaks to hopefully bring everything together in one place.

Let me know what you think. If you already have your own website or shop you can leave your links to these on my Discussions tab, where there is a 'Link Love' thread; share it around, you never know what you might discover on your travels.

Meanwhile, when you are in forums and the like, keep an eye out for my avatar above, which is sea glass on sea weed and the one I use for all my forum activities. Just come on over and say 'hi'!
