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.
Just listed on Ebay - 2 more packs of pink-lavender genuine freshwater pearls. Listed seperately with a low starting price. No longer needed now I make my own lampwork beads, I am selling off any gemstones and pearls I discover in boxes hidden in my studio.
Fabric fat quarters (that's 1/2 the width of the roll by 1/2 metre/yard) and a big wooden bobbin - the bobbin is apparentlly vintage but was sold to me with ribbon - the ribbon has now all been used and the bobbin surely has a new life somewhere.
I only have the one bobbin, the other 2 sold, I don't have hundreds in my attic, I won't be getting more. For some reason I am getting a lot of enquiries like this.
Sadly I can't help the postage on the bobbin, it's a big bit of wood, and no amount of squeezing will squish it small enough to fit as a large letter. I don't make up the Post Office rules (although clearly some people think I do!).
