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.

A few new pendants .....

I've been busy making affordable pendants for sale at my fairs and in my Etsy, Artfire and Folksy shops. Each of these is made from one of handmade lampwork glass focal beads, threaded onto sterling silver wire and finished with sterling silver fittings and chain.

Have a look in my Etsy, Folksy and Artfire shops at the range available. Each comes in one of my professionally printed Blue Box Studio boxes, carefully packed for safe and speedy delivery. These would make wonderful presents for friends, family or even yourself.
