"Engage fully in life, ride the moment, and wait for the perfect time."

Life threw me a couple of curveballs in my mid 20's with redundancy and miscarriage occurring less than a year apart. My response was to dive into a lifelong passion for the arts and I headed to university to study contemporary crafts. I graduated in 2010 with glass as my specialist material, and then turned my attention to raising a family.

Once my two awesome sons were of school age, and with the support of my inspirational husband who runs his own graffiti art business, I quit my job as a Family Support Worker to persue my dream of being a Glass Artist.

I now work from a purpose-built studio at the back of my leafy garden, where I also offer workshops. I enjoy creating colourful jewellery and small interior items to brighten up people's wardrobes and homes. Ultimately, if my work can help bring a smile to someone else's face, then it has achieved something special.

Thank you for reading, I hope you stick around and enjoy my work.

    I love to play with light and colour through my work with glass. The excitement of opening the kiln to reveal the results of new experiments is timeless. I also enjoy biking through the woods, playing board games, and drinking too much tea.

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

Gift wrapping is available on all purchases for a small additional fee, please select this option at checkout. I only use 100% recycled paper featuring beautiful designs by UK artists. Between October and December I will use a festive pattern unless requested otherwise by the buyer. Gifts can be sent directly to the recipient with a handwritten message from the buyer, great for those last minute presents!

Custom and personalised orders

I am open to commission requests. Everything is made by hand entirely from scratch, so I can be fairly flexible with what I create. If you see something you like but would prefer it in a different colour, size, or style, please feel free to message me so that we can discuss your requirements. If an item you desire is sold out, it is likely I can recreate this or something similar, again just message me your requests and I'll see what I can do.

Sizing details

All rings are adjustable in size for a flexible fit and all bracelets and necklaces come complete with 2" extender chains. Bracelets and necklaces can easily be shortened on the buyer's request, just leave instructions in the "notes to seller" box at checkout. If you require a longer chain please message me prior to purchase to check stock availibility, and depending on how much extra length is required, a slight upcharge may apply.

Is your jewellery lead and nickel free?

Yes, I make sure all of my metal findings are free from lead and nickel. I have previously suffered from allergic reactions to these chemicals myself, so I am very conscious about avoiding exposure to them in my work and you can feel assured my jewellery is safe.

Do you make the glass components yourself?

Yes, I am a fused glass artist who studied the craft at Lincoln University. All individual glass components are designed and created by myself in my purpose-built studio with the help of my glass kiln. Processes are detailed on individual listings, but if you would like to learn more then please feel free to message me, or even book on to one of my fused glass workshops!

Wholesale availability

I do offer wholesale prices to traders with a minimum order amount. Please feel free to email me at to request the current wholesale price list.

Do you deliver worldwide? And are breakages in transit covered?

Yes I do. I want my creations to be enjoyed across the globe. Although glass can be a fragile material, great care is taken to package the items well, and so far I have never had an item break in transit. Postal services do not offer insurance on glass items, however I personally offer this to my customers. If your purchase is broken in transit a replacement item will be sent where possible. Where a replacement item is unavailable, a full refund will be given. I offer these assurances as I wish for my customers to have a care-free shopping experience with me.
