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.

Spotlight on a customer

This pretty bracelet and earrings have been made by Jean, using my handmade lampwork beads. I think they are so pretty and I'm delighted to have seen what Jean has made.

Jean sells her work through her Etsy shop and through her website. Her work is beautiful, do take a look.

I'm always delighted when customers show me their creations from my own work. If you're one of my customers and would love to show me what you've made made, please send me some photos.
