Welcome to my wonderful world of handmade lampwork beads and handcrafted jewellery .

I enjoy making handmade beads that are not mass produced and have that original feel and look. As my beads are not mass produced not every bead is the same and can vary ever so slightly . This is why I feel excitement each time I melt glass as each time is like the first time. Any imperfections are stated in my descriptions so buyer please be aware .

Enjoy looking at my beads.
It is our imagination that lets us create these wonderful designs.

My Snood

So this is my snood I think that's what the talented Angelia Laurie calls it, she is a friend on the Island that makes these beanies & snoody type things, 4 years she has being doing her course . I have never suited hats having curly hair it always looked awful. When I saw Angelia Laurie with her hat and her curly red hair she convinced me to come and have a try. So I did and I still was not sure but I still bought one as they were that Lushish I had to have one, then after a good few months I put it on to go shopping and was hooked, love it plus I don't have flat hair afterwards I can get away with it and it keeps my head warm . Plus if I am having a bad frizz day I know I can stick this on to go out. We went to the pics to see Sherlock Holmes & I had my first restaurant curry since last August , very nice if not rushed as we had a ferry to catch . The joys of Island living.
Although I did wake up with a banging headache this morning and was wondering because I have not had takeaways or restaurant foods for that long and have detoxed my body from that enjoyment weather it affected my body in that way. I hope not otherwise that will be another pleasure gone. Bloody Hell.

She is trying clothes at the moment in the same style all done by hand, just her. Amazing and very talented woman. I will keep you posted on her latest creations.
