I would recommend Claire's beautiful jewellery to everyone, I have a glass bead pendant and where ever I go people ask where I got it from. I have also got them for presents for my family and friends

These earrings were beautiful and loved by the recipient. They had unfortunately been damaged in the post but the seller was really helpful and sorted things out very quickly.

I'm a self taught glass artist and silversmith commissions welcome ☺️

It all started when I first started making things to sell, and sold them locally.( In Devon in the UK) Someone told me about Etsy, and suggested that I start a shop, so I did.
The Beads and jewellery that I make, I try my utmost to portray the beauty of glass.i use murano and and cim soda lime glass a Bethlehem Alpha, small kiln and oxygen concerntrators in order to achieve the high temperature needed to melt the glass,
I make my items to last, with the understanding that they are also glass, which is not indestructible! But that said I would hope you understand you should contact me asap if anything happens....I am nice you know ;-)
I have been lampworking since 2008.( 2008 was my very first twirl)
I am completely self taught, using other artist clever and well written tutorials and books, using my reading skills, and the three P's, Patience, Perseverance, and Practice!
After working for so many years with glass, I decided that I wanted to experience the medium of metals, precious or otherwise... So I took a one day course, and have been playing with silver and brass and incorporating it into my designs ever since.
All pieces are made by me in my studio in beautiful Devon! (UK)
(Aka my lovely shedio :-)
