You've seen them, now you can buy them.
I've listed two of my sea glass, lampwork bead and sterling silver necklaces in my Big Cartel shop.
As always they will be carefully packed in my signature boxes, beautifully wrapped and ready for giving as a gift, or keeping for yourself.
Harrods already have their Christmas stock on display so can't be long now until Christmas - shop early and buy what you want whilst it's still on offer.

Some more gorgeous beads, this time by Laura Sparling, with sea glass by Mother Nature and made into necklaces by Yours Truly. It was seeing Laura's beads that made me want to try lampwork bead making in the first place.
I'm really pleased with these and can't wait for my first beads to come back from being fired by George so I can make a necklace with my own beads. George offered to fire my first beads as I haven't yet bought a kiln (still saving, a major investment) so thanks to George. George has some rather nice findings on her website, I can see my shopping list getting longer!
My other piece of good news today, I've won a £20 gift voucher for the Grant Bradley gallery in Bristol. I shall have to go and have a look at what they have on offer. I collect contemporary glass, particularly perfume bottles so, with a birthday looming (21 with a lot of experience before you ask) this might be the time to add to my collection. I've been very restrained, my last purchase was a Stuart Akroyd fin bottle, my celebration for doing well during North Somerset Arts Week 2009. Perhaps the celebration for NSAW 2011 will be a kiln!
