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.

Shop policies

Last updated on February 3, 2011
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!

International Items will be sent by airmail. If you require extras, for example tracking and insurance, please let me know. This may incur extra fees for you. Shipping to North America should take around one week, but please allow two weeks as post can get very busy, especially during holidays.

Please return the item undamaged in its original packaging. The money will be refunded once the item has been received undamaged by me. I recommend tracking items you are returning, as I will not be able to refund items which I have not received.
Additional policies and FAQs
All of my jewellery and glass beads are made loving and to the absolute best of my ability.
I hope you enjoy using them as much as I have enjoyed creating them.
