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.

Time to get back on the road again - and other stories

 

 This weekend sees the beginning of my fairs season

I will be in 

The Winter Gardens, Weston Super Mare

Saturday 17th October
9.30am to 5pm


 I have been asked to take part in an online event, selling items exclusive to to one particular venue - more of that later (not sure how much I am meant to say before it goes live)
It will be a totally different experience for me, but going occasionally outside of my comfort zone is good for the soul, and I promised myself in 2002 that nothing would ever stop me from trying anything new again.  Other than anything to do with heights, I don't do heights.


For the new event and new experience I need to offer work not available elsewhere, so
will be offering necklaces and earrings in a new style, coasters in a new colour and (hopefully) these gorgeous tea light or trinket dishes - I have just three of these on offer but will be trying to get more of this design as I think it is rather gorgeous.
