About Me

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 veg plot – and the 4th riddle

As those of you who follow my blog and ramblings will know, our garden floods when it rains heavily so all the borders that matter, in the back garden, are raised.  As a result we grow our veg in pots – when we remember to plant the seeds.  RHS Rosemoor seem better at this than us, I wonder why?

Hidden down the end of a path is their veg garden, full of pumpkins and squashes, melons and onions, chillies and salad crops, sunflower heads for the birds – and a scarecrow gardener.   

Now we are half way through the riddles – here is riddle number 4.

I am not alive but I grow
I do not have lungs but need air
I do not have a mouth but water kills me
What am I?
