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.

Some more tools

The clear-out is nearly complete! As always, click on the picture to be taken to the listing.

A traditional bow drill

A mini anvil, ideal for jewellery work

Curved blade metal cutting shears, ideal for jewellery work and cutting silver sheet and wire

Whilst you are looking at these, have a look at other tools that are for sale. I've not listed international prices but if you are interested in buying, let me know and I'll quote a postage price for you.

Other tools still to be listed ~ Creusen polisher and stand with mops and polishing compounds and a propane gas torch set with several burners (and possibly a small cylinder of propane if you collect - I'm not mailing that!!). These will be listed over the next couple of weeks.
