Welcome to my website. Here you will find information about my handmade glass-bead jewellery, including how I make my beads, where you can purchase my work and information about how you can learn to make your own glass beads. My contemporary jewellery is made with my own handcrafted glass beads. Each bead is made in an oxygen/propane flame using 'lampwork' techniques believed to have originated in 16th & 17th century Venice. I also 'blow' hollow glass beads using a blowpipe.
I often work to commission, please contact me or come and visit a show if you'd like to discuss a special piece.
I sell my work at 'top of the range' contemporary design & craft shows and in selected galleries in the South East of England.
My next show is with The Sussex Guild at De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill-on-Sea, TN20 1DP, 19-20 Oct 2019
I also have work on show at Worthing Museum & Art Gallery, BN11 1HP, 'Sussex Makers' 21 Sept - 21 Dec 19
