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.

The 'end of an era' 20% off scarf sale!

20% off all handmade silk and velvet scarves 
in my Etsy shop 
- until 11pm 14 February - 
the sale kicks off with 35 to choose from 
in a myriad of colours, sizes, textures and fabrics.

These are genuine artisan designed items, 
so if you appreciate quality and individuality 
then these are for you.  
Each has been individually made in my studio 
from beautiful silk, 
wonderfully soft velvet, 
shimmering silk satin 
and with a lot of thought and care 
as to the design, texture, pattern, colour.  

There is a little bit of my heart and soul in all of these.  
I have loved making every one - but things change.

Having made the hard decision to walk away 
from my first love, textiles, 
and concentrate on glass, for now, 
I'm having a short sale - 
take a look at my Etsy reviews to see 
what others think of my scarves (they love them!), 
stock up for Valentine's Day, birthdays, 
Christmas, yourself :) - 
but what I have in my shop is all that I have, 
for now, I won't be making more.

But never say never, perhaps one day ....
