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.

Whilst the sun is shining

I have said before that sets are not my thing. Not that I will not be able to do a set the same in time , no that's not the problem here. Far from it . I do 2 or maybe 3 beads the same , then get bored and something else pops into my head. I enjoyed my full 8 hours in the pink room yesterday, free form beading or " the organic look" . Whatever you choose to call those days where you just put colours together to see if they work. Beads are not level or perfect , they are free hand . No rollers or bead presses to help get that " perfect " look. 

No the days I enjoy the best are the free form days, where anything goes !!! 

Shape , style , colour ............ Anything goes .... ...

                                                              And if it doesn't .........

                                                       You always have tomorrow.
