Updates

A pop of colour, especially wonderful on grey days (or with neutrals!). Possibly the most popular necklace of in my shop now in my new favourite colour combo (Ice Blue & Tomato Red). In fact, I’m wearing one right now. I tried it on and kept it on!
This vintage 35mm film Camera Necklace one of my steady sellers and I’m often runnng out of it but I’ve just added new colours starting with the Ice Blue.

Bending Glass

I love making these glass pendants. I'm trying to make something that is fun and has impact but that doesn't take itself too seriously. Colour matching gives me a bit of a thrill, as does coming up with a new way to work the glass. Glass is finicky and technical...there are a lot of rules. I don't like to follow a recipe as it is written, even if it is mine! So, although I've learned how to control the glass, my designs are often born of experiments and discovery.

I make a lot of pendants, but I view each one individually, the way I expect its new owner will. Quality is very important to me. I want my work to be affordable but I also want it to last. I like to save little stones, odd finds and mementos that remind me of friends, travels, and different periods of my life and I assume that others do too. I'd like to think that my pendants might end up as treasured keepsakes that evoke memories long after being worn as a necklace.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

Are you looking for another colour or image? I might have it! Send me a message and I can send a photo or description of what I have.
-:- I'd also love to hear your suggestions. I can't promise that I can make it but many of my best items come from customer suggestions.
-:- Due to the lengthy design process for my images, I am unable to make one-off custom images for my necklaces, but again, I do welcome general image requests.

Sizing details

Pendant necklaces: most pendants are under 1" in either direction and usually between 3/4" x 7/8" in height or width.
Necklaces: Most necklaces are 18" in length (this will be stated in the listing). Please send a message or add a note to your order if you would like another size. Cord necklaces up to 26" are no extra cost.

Wholesale availability

Yes, I do wholesale!

Care instructions

My glass pendants are waterproof. The cord necklaces may last longer if kept dry but mine often get wet without issue:)

Gift wrapping and packaging

I ship small items such as pendant necklaces in a flat mailer package as this greatly decreases your shipping cost.
