2013…

Little Breakfast in Delft Set

Little Breakfast in Delft Set

I feel blog guilt. It’s been quite a while, but everything has been mad busy here, which is definitely a good thing! I taught a lovely lady some lampwork skills yesterday, have a couple of new galleries lined up for 2013 already, and my etsy shop is ticking along well. On top of all this, I’m working slowly but surely on some new ranges of jewellery and beads, and hope to share the inspiration and making process with you all.

In the meantime, I have been working on some little, more affordable for January versions of some of my more popular beads, ranging from £12 to £14 for a set. I’ll leave you with some of them for now (links are clickable) and be back with some of my new work and ideas quicksmart!

On the other side of the studio…

I thought I would share with you the work of my studio mate, Jessica Howarth. Jess and I met at art college and have been sharing a studio at Arts Complex in Meadowbank since September. We both work with kilns, and both glass to an extent, only Jess works with enamel (very finely ground glass), and metal. She gradually builds up layers of coloured enamel onto copper or silver, patiently fusing layer after layer onto the base in a kiln. The ‘houses’ in the pictures are her degree show work, 3D Structures of enamelled copper, with various pieces of wearable jewellery hidden within.

Here are some more images, enjoy!

You can follow Jess on Facebook , Twitter , she has a lovely blog too, and a tumblr page

Where I Fell for Glass…

I have been on Pinterest again, this time digging up pictures which remind me of a 2009 trip to Venice, and more importantly the island of Murano.
Maybe you can see why I became addicted to all things glassy.
