Spheres Of Glass
handmade lampwork beads, brass tools

These jewellery items are made on the occasion that I feel like doing something with the beads that I make. It’s not very often that I sit down and have the time to do this but when I do I’m never sure what to do with the finished item. I occasionally wear the odd item and keep some for my own use, but to be honest when finished they tend to sit in a box, so I’ve decided that when the urge hits me, I’ll put them up for sale here. I just like trying out different techniques, it also gives me a few ideas for trying out different styles of glass bead, after all, that’s what my hobby is really all about, making glass beads. I hope you like what you see, if you want to buy them then please do, if it inspires you to try something out then good. Enjoy.

The broaches are something that I make occasionally. i attended a course at Tuffnels Glass in Yorkshire, a visiting artist Sara Sally Le Grand was taking the class and inspired me to go on an try making a few. They are very ornate and can be heavy in weight so need to be worn on something like a thick coat or jumper. Not something light for a summer jacket, so limited in their use but extremely pretty all the same. I have quite a few as ornaments... being that I like all things glassy and not having young children around they will actually survive for a while! That is of course if I can keep the cats off them!.
