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.

What can you do with my sea glass beads?

Just to give you some ideas what you can do with my handmade beads from genuine English sea glass - these are all my own designs and are suggestions and are NOT for direct copying; I'm sure you'll soon have your own ideas and make things with more originality and flair :)

A couple of pieces can simply be made into a pendant - here decorated with Swarovski crystals and mounted on sterling silver - let the beauty of the glass speak for itself

or strung together to make a necklace

I like to use sea glass with my own handmade lamp work glass beads,
I think they go well together

and they work well in both bracelets and necklaces

as well as in earrings

but if you like simple not fancy, sea glass makes perfect earrings too.

top or centre drilled, I have sea glass beads for sale on Ebay this week, as well as some in my Etsy and Artfire shops.

If you are looking for something specific, I am happy to drill sea glass
to commission
and post worldwide. Contact me via my website.

  1. I love your sea glass, I grew up near a beach that was covered with sea glass after each storm. Thanks for sharing your designs.
