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.

Back to nature (and other pretty things)

I've just listed some pretty lampwork glass, sea glass and sterling silver necklaces in my Etsy, Artfire, Folksy and GoovyCart shops.

All of my sea glass necklaces are made from genuine English sea glass, personally collected from beaches around the beautiful English coastline.

The blue sea glass is particularly rare, it will most likely be Victorian, all sea glass being 50-100 years old - it takes Mother Nature that long to make her jewels that smooth and frosted.
