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.

Books! Books! Books!!

I'm selling books I no longer need, to make space for books that I do need.

Click on the pics to be taken to the listings.

Making vintage bags - a stunning inspirational book, new and unused, an impulse buy.

Nuno felt by Liz Clay, oh if only I had the time to make everything I see - another impulse buy!

The Sewing Book - everything you need to know. An unused book but the dust cover and back cover are damaged, thanks to poor packaging by the supplier and heavy-handedness by the postman.

If you make cards and wrap then this is for you. Some wonderful designs, lots of inspiration and 31 projects to follow step-by-step.
