   Handmade Jewellery   inspired by the coast

 

 

Do you come home from the beach with a pocketful of pebbles, some shells, a few bits of colourful sea glass and some pieces of driftwood that are just too wonderful to leave behind?

If the answer is yes, then you are just like me and I make jewellery for people like us!

 

When I was a child, my father bought me a stone tumbler so that I could polish the pebbles that I had collected. It took weeks of tumbling but when they were shiny, I made them into pendants and wore them all the time. After art college I spent many years of working with glass on a much larger scale but I have recently started to make jewellery again, using tiny pieces of glass to add to my collection.

It is the glass that continues to intrigue me and I still consider myself a glass maker rather than a jeweller.

 

I create jewellery inspired by memories of beach combing and the pure joy of finding a perfect pebble.

 I don't attempt to replicate the natural world but instead I hope to stir long forgotten memories of a slow, peaceful walk along the seashore.

The SHOP NOW button will take you to my current collections and lots and lots of tiny earrings.

I have always been intrigued by the natural colours and textures of the sea shore, by the wide horizons and the surface of the cliffs. 

I use sheets of Bullseye handmade glass, fusing them together in a kiln at temperatures of over 800°C, combining transparent and opal glass with dichroic and iridescent layers to create jewels that catch the light and shimmer with every movement
...perfect for jewellery.

 Although inspired by the coast, I make all my glass jewellery at home in rural Northamptonshire, a very long way from the sea.

 

I am happy to promote the Just a Card campaign that aims to encourage people to buy from Designer/Makers and Independent Galleries and Shops by reinforcing the message that all purchases, however small, even 'just a card' are so vital to the prosperity and survival of small businesses.

In my case it is just a pair of tiny earrings...
