I am a self taught bead maker, creating glass beads in my garden studio since 2005. In 2018 I gained a bright new workshop where I am now able to offer glass bead making classes for one or two people.

 I have a passion for making beads and especially enjoy the process of manipulating and controlling glass in a flame. I love colour, so glass is a perfect medium for me as the possibilities are endless. Everywhere I go I look for ideas for colour and pattern combinations. In recent years my jewellery collections have been inspired by seeds and seed pods, butterflies and moths in my garden and on the West Wight Downs.

For the last year or so I have been exploring the medium of paper mache. I create quirky naive figures of dogs, cats and other animals mostly, I am enjoying the process of discovering ways to manipulate and use what is simply newspaper and paste.

I also delight in  making wonky coil pots, ballet dancing,, walking my dog and getting stuck into a good bit of gardening.

In the past I have had stalls at many local craft shows. My jewellery can also be found at several island shops including the Quay Arts..

In 2011 I won first prize in the strung jewellery category of the GBUK [Glass beadmakers UK] competition and runner up in the mixed media category 2012.
