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.

Lots of gorgeous fabrics needing a new home

The clear out continues. Having bought lots of fabric to make bags, then deciding that bags were not for me, I need to find new homes for a lot of the fabrics. These are all new fabrics, not recycled or reclaimed. There are silks, cottons, mystery fabrics, big pieces, small pieces, odd shaped pieces, all sorts. Please read the listings for full details and about postage costs.

First up Dupion silks:

The other larger pieces of silk (mainly)

Then the cottons ...

Keep an eye on my Etsy and Folksy supplies shops as more will be listed, and has already been listed.
