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.

Beads on the 'Bay

In a post-Christmas need to clear the decks and make way for more work, I've put some beads on Ebay. I'll add more later and some tomorrow, as time allows.

There are sets of beads, charm beads for your Troll and Pandora bracelets (but look just as good on necklaces),
as well as a few supplies - some brads for cardmaking and a commercially made glass puff heart.

And for anyone who needs Weights & Measures approved scales, or likes a bit of retro (and has a kitchen bigger than mine) my gorgeous scales are also up for grabs with a starting price less than you can buy the brass weights for nowadays. These are fab, I loved them in my kitchen but since moving to The Tiddly Terrace I haven't any room for them. Just the thing if you need decent scales for weighing out small amounts for sale. They were tested by W&M when I bought them, and found accurate, but not needed to have them checked since. The weights are all metric, although the scales are British. Wedderburn told me they thought they were probably late 60s or early 70s when I enquired.
