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.

Lampwork beads - solos on sale

Ideal for stocking up your bead stash in time for the Christmas Rush [yes, there will be one this year], pretties for bracelets and necklaces.

These are my 'solos', experimental beads, ones left over from sets, a different size to others I made or ones that didn't quite match or come out as I expected. Nothing wrong with them, just different.

On offer there are strings of spots and stripes, others are themed by colour. Click on the pics for more info.
