About

Life is one long, colourful journey.

Hello.

My name is Lesley and I'm a work from home Mum to three awesome people :D
I live in the wilderness ... well the Staffordshire Peak District in the UK, in a tiny village, high up on the moors.

I started to make jewellery with trinkets and pretties, around 10 or 11 years ago, whilst I was on long term sick leave from a rather stressful job as a domestic violence outreach worker.
As much as I valued my career, I found that being creative was incredibly therapeutic, and I started to feel more like 'Me'

I discovered the (still pretty unknown, back then) art of lampworking. I bought a starter kit and was instantly hooked ! The rest, as they say is history :)

10 years on and I am starting to branch out in a new direction. I have started studying Art and Contemporary Craft at foundation degree level and I am loving it !

Who knows where my journey will take me ? I certainly don't, but I do know that it'll be lots and LOTS of fun !
