It's all about the beads!

I became smitten with beads back in 1997 after wandering into the bead shop in London's Covent Garden. Lured by the colours and sparkle I was mesmerised and began a love affair that continues to this day. I collected, admired, made jewelry, wove seed bead amulets and generally played with my ever growing collection of pretties for a few years, I even sold some of my beaded jewelry to friends and family.

Then in 2002 I came across handmade artisan lampwork beads that were so different from the generic lampwork I was familiar with from the bead shops. I was fascinated, I needed to do this. It took me a while, searching and researching. Lampworking had kept it's secrets for generations on Murano, Italy and it was early days for the internet as well as beadmaking.

My tenacity paid off though and I found not only a teacher in the UK but a whole society dedicated to lampworking, GBUK - Glass Beadmakers UK. I booked my first class and I was in heaven, it was way too much fun! I have taken many classes in beadmaking and jewelry and spent thousands of hours practising at the torch since then but the initial spark is still burning brightly and I'm still having too much fun.
