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.

My shops are now open again ...........


So do take a look at what's on offer. As mentioned in the previous post there is a 10% discount code for my Etsy and Big Cartel shops. Read the post below to get further info.

Shops will next close on Thursday next in readiness for my busiest and final craft fair of the season; so if you have your eye on something it could be a case of 'he who hesitates is lost' as this fair, at the Create Centre in Bristol (see my website for further details and a map) is usually one that needs me to raid the store cupboard for goodies. A lovely fair, I really enjoy this one and am really looking forward to it. Worth the trip if you are reasonably local, leave your disinterested partners listing to the band or at the Bath Ales bar downstairs and find me (hopefully) upstairs. I won't know my exact position until I get there but am hoping to be in my usual spot, the small end room on the right as you get to the top of the stairs (and ignoring the one-way system). Look for Blue Box Studio on the show plan, available from reception as you arrive.
