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.

Lazy Sunday afternoon

Found, deeply asleep, snoring his little heart away, on our bed. He was supposed to have been sunning himself in the garden but seems to have snuck in before the inner catflap (a.k.a. frog and mouse barrier) was locked, when we went out for the day.

They can get out if in, but not in if out, else we wake to find gift of live frogs in our shoes, cunningly hidden the day before, now hopping about trying to find a safe place to hide. Yeuk!
