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.

Have a look and see

So in my new shed I have been working on these. The first day was ever so OMG OMG OMG . I had room everything was too hand, nothing moves, its warm ( after the heater has been on for a while) and I feel like I am in heaven. 

This was yesterdays work again I was working with Striped Pink , and gun metal and black. So much for colour !! I just love it . My hearts did not turn out how I would like them. Its the middle and the end I seem to have problems with. However I shall continue having a go at them at least one a week, you never know it might click one day.

I then had a try around 5 ish last with Mermaid and Goldstone Ribbon. Not sure on how to use the ribbon I either encased it and pulled it into a stringer or placed it on the bead and encased quickly then melted. I loved how they have turned out on my first attempt. Not perfect but the colours together are stunning.

More news some beads I made and put into a bracelet and earrings for someone in New Zealand have arrived and the feedback was positive and gratifying . Plus a party in a few weeks so I better start making some of these beads into pieces of Jewellery otherwise they will have nothing to look at . No pressure then !!!!
