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.

Last fair of the year ......

So, here we are, about to do our last fair of the year. Like the rest of the year I'm muttering 'where's the time gone?' seems only a few weeks ago it was September and we were about to start the Blue Box Studio road show.

Like last week, we are at the Guildhall in the market place in Salisbury tomorow from 9.30am to 5pm. After last week's rush on shibori dyeing scarf kits I've sourced fabrics and pipettes to make more kits so plenty more to be had now - we were down to just one kit! I have lots of sea glass jewellery, some of which I will reduce in price to make way in the box for new work after Christmas and some new scarves - silk - devore velvet and solid velvet; just the thing for these cold mornings and ideal for Christmas presents. Don't forget, buying from me you are buying from the maker and all work is designed and made by me. You don't find that at every craft fair!!!

If you are in Salisbury do come and see us and say 'hello'; surprise me - I am beginning to think the only person who read my blog is me!

As usual, my shops will be closed from later this evening until after the fair - perhaps the end of the weekend as I have to be somewhere else Sunday doing family-things.
