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.

New shop!

My work is now available from my Blue Box Studio shop on GroovyCart. Where? I hear you say. Yes, I'd not heard of it until yesterday either but it is a British site so I thought I'd give it a try for a couple of months.

I've already listed a few scarves and some of my shibori dyeing scarf kits; more work will follow over the next couple of days and weeks.

Give it some love. If no one visits and buys I'll not keep it, stocking on-line shops is a long winded business and eats into making time.
