About

I am a very creative person and get inspiration from nature.

Hello my name is Ann-Marie and my journey started in Embroidery around 2001. I work in an adult education college and took the opportunity of taking some weekend classes. Embroidery was the first class I studied and I enjoyed learning new stitches, dying fabric, sewing and fabric manipulation.

After 3 years taking embroidery classes I then took a Mosaic Taster weekend course which I absolutely fell in love with. I was able to work with scraps of stained glass, pebbles, broken ceramics, tiles, recycled objects etc. The possibility is endless and I guess I was intrigued at the idea of using these broken objects and turning it into amazing unique one of pieces.

I immediately enrolled myself onto a longer 12 weeks Stained Glass and Mosaic Course around 2005. I learnt glass cutting, Lead Work (used in stained glass widows.) Copperfoilling (used in Tiffany Style Lamps) and soldering.

I experimented a lot with wire coils and swirls with my stained glass work which then lead me to Studying Wirewrapping and Silversmithing. Jewellery making was a natural transition for me allowing me to now combine the 2 mediums.

I am passionate about my work and find it ever so relaxing and therapeutic. I now teach Wirewrapping and Recycled Glass WorkShop at the same college I myself learnt these amazing skills that have changed my life.

I am filled with joy and pride seeing what my students are creating and seeing the happiness they also get from being creative.

I love nature and get inspiration all the time looking at our beautiful planet. Thank you for taking the time to look at my shop and hope you like my work as much as I have enjoyed creating it.
