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.

This week's offerings....


I'm having a bit of a clear out this week!

First up on Ebay this week ...

I've listed a lot of pieces of multi coloured end of day sea glass - 
so rare, so pretty, so unusual.
 
 

Then there are a couple of lovely Fluorite and sterling silver pendants, 
just crying out to be made into a necklace
 


as is this gorgeous lampwork glass pendant - 
bought when I made kumihimo silk cords for necklaces, 
but, lovely though it is, I don't want to sell someone else's work 
alongside my lampwork jewellery so it needs a new home
 

Then there are some fabric pieces, big and small, 
enough for patchwork, enough for a garment or curtains.

Tomorrow is another day (who said that? [don't answer :) ] ) 
and I will list more then

likely offerings will be lampwork bead sets and focals by Yours Truly 
and some more sea glass pieces.
