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.

Whoa, stop the world I want to get off!


What a week!  One minute it is Sunday, and here we are at Friday - I'm not sure where the days in between went? I had a bead Showcase on UK Lampwork Showcase on Sunday which was very busy, followed by a couple of busy days selling in a few of the Facebook groups, so by Wednesday the bead box was looking very depleted.  Just the oomph I needed to get back out there making beads, a bit of motivation always helps when you aren't feeling 100%.

Continuing my participation in the Craft Pimp 52 things Challenge 2015, and with everything else going on at the moment;  this week is week 40.  First was an order for 4 robin coasters, now on their way to warmer climes, and because I had the glass and a spare space in the kiln, 2 more small tea light / change/whatever dishes, this time powder printed in purple.  These will be in my Etsy shop shortly, priced at £6 each + postage.

Robin coasters, as well as Santa, Rudolph and the Fairy are available to order at £7 each + postage, again from my Etsy shop.
