Absolutely perfect earrings! So glad I found them as I need hypoallergenic earrings and I haven't found any that I really liked. These are great thank you :-)

About

Beautiful Original Glass Jewellery

After leaving art college I was determined to carve out a career for myself in the field of jewellery and glass I had just spent three years studying.

I work with molten glass in a flame using enamels and metals to colour and decorate it. I either make glass beads (disc shape are my favourite at the moment!), and make them into jewellery, or I make jewellery directly in the flame onto surgical steel or silver.

My jewellery is inspired by travel, and beautiful colours, recording places and moments with a hint of nostalgia.
I hope it invokes curiosity, whimsy and an explorative feeling in those who wear it.

An update...
I gave up my job in August 2013 after a lot of dithering, and now run my business full time! I haven't looked back yet.

Hello! I'm Helen, welcome to my shop. I am currently a jeweller in training at Art College, and I make my own lampwork glass beads to use in my work. I love making glass beads so much, I have a surplus now, and thought maybe you would like to have some too :)

All of my beads are totally handmade by me using soft glass, thoroughly cleaned so there is no bead release left in them, and annealed in a kiln so the glass is stable and durable.

I am SRA #C-136

Enjoy!
