She makes the most lovely statement necklaces and kits.I thought I might be able to combine one with my headpins and contacted Emma to see what she thought. Good idea she said - so I ordered one. Isn't i ...

I don't take custom orders very often. I find that they put me under too much pressure and who needs that in your life? But this was a pretty easy one and made to match a pendant that a lady had bought from Glory Art Glass. Apparently she has quite a few of my pieces so I hope she likes this bracel ...

I'm so excited! I have designed and made some new packaging for my jewellery. I like my kraft boxes very much but I didn't think that the black velvet inserts showed my jewellery off to it's best advantage and the white wadding type inserts weren't man enough for the job. The foam at the back of the ...

My husband has been in the habit lately of saying - this song is 30 years old or this film was released 50 years ago. Which of course makes me feel old (I'm only 50) but just sometimes I yearn for the olden days. When I was younger I used to collect stamps and it was always exciting to get a letter ...

I was hoping to have had my latest mosaic finished today but the weather over the weekend was so nice that it would have been a shame not to spend it outdoors. So instead I'll have to show you my work in progress photos and hopefully have the finished piece to show you next week. You may remember ...

Last year when I started doing shows to sell my jewellery, I needed some display stands. I like recycling where I can so I made some earring stands using some driftwood and pebbles I collected from the beach and some bent mandrels. Mandrels are rods are metal that I use to create my beads on. As the ...

I've had the idea of this sunflower necklace in my head for a while and when I saw that the June challenge on the Art Elements Blog was Sunflowers I knew I needed to get it done. I was away on holiday for most of June so it was a bit touch and go as to whether I would get it finished in time and t ...

I'm delighted to announce that 3 of my competition necklaces are now on display in the Isle of Wight Glass Museum. Much better than them sitting in a box on the top of my wardrobe! The museum has done a blog post with an interview http://www.isleofwightglassmuseum.org.uk/blog:21     ...

I can hardly believe it's happening, rather than send my 2 necklaces to the USA and risk them breaking in the post I am going to take them in person! It's going to be an interesting experience as I am travelling for the first time on WoW Air, an Icelandic company operating out of Reykjavik. I fly o ...

I've entered 2 necklaces into Embodiment - a juried jewellery and wearables exhibit organised by the Pittsburgh Glass Centre and 3 Rivers Glass Beadmakers (USA).
