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.

My first Folksy Friday

So, can anyone join in? There's nothing I like more than a spot of window shopping. Actually that's not true, window shopping comes a close second to spending!!

So my window on the world for Friday (only just) is on a sea theme. I promise there is nothing made by me in this blog. To see more of the items, click on the pictures.


First up is a gorgeous ring, made from sea glass from the fantastically named Mooglet P Bears' Fantasmagoric Shop 'o' Wonders.


I just love this cushion from Jenny's Stuff. With 2 cats in the house, definitely one for window shopping though.

Part of the Sea Bubbles series by Lucy Campbell; "Dear Santa, I have been a good girl so far this year, please remember this item for Christmas, xx"


This picture would look beautiful in my conservatory, and is inspired by Sennen Cove, somewhere I love visiting.


I think this brooch by Lynwood crafts is so cute, reminds me of wonderful holidays in Cornwall.

Well, I hope I've complied with the rules (are there any?). It's still (just) Friday!

Enjoy.
