About Me

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.

New jewellery, old jewellery

Whilst looking for something in my attic I came across one of my old storage boxes, long since superceded by a more efficient storage system ... or so I thought. The box seemed heavy for empty and closer inspection revealed it to be full of gemstone and silver jewellery which I made several years ago. Such are the joys of moving house, things end up in the most unlikely places and I had spent a while back then assuming I had come to the end of that stock line.

For lots of reasons I no longer make gemstone and silver jewellery like this. These pieces, in my Folksy, Etsy and Artfire shops, are all that is left and I am selling them at sale prices. There are pearls ~ all naturally coloured, gemstones, necklaces, earrings, sets, all at a fraction of their normal price. Also in my shops, a pretty necklace made from PMC, again the last one left, as well as lampwork bead jewellery, beads for your own projects and lots more.

Do take a look, lots of things that are ideal for gifts, for friends, family, brides and yourself.
