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 first set
Inspired by Julie from Lush Lampwork and her coastal focals . I attempted just 2 colours and kept them plain to practise with. I spent all day Thursday with my new oxycon called Jon. Well that's what Tuffnell's have named it.
This is my second lentil that I have done on my own not perfect but for a second attempt I do not think it is too bad. Not for the bin anyway.
I have put Silver in 3 of the beads to see how they turned out and to practise more than anything. Really pleased with these I hope to improve with more time on the torch.
I am a Silly Moo with a very obsessive hobbie.
I was born in Taunton Somerset & moved to sunny Manchester in the summer of 1988. I have been married forever & we have a son ( one child is enough !!!! ) together. Other members of our tribe are 3 dogs ( aiming always for more cockers ) 2 cats ( one is a piss pot anny ) & 2 Hens for now
