After 25 years in the NHS, I am now realising a new career as a glass fuser and small business owner and all that entails. It has been a steep learning curve (still learning every day...) and I have made many new friends through art events or business networking. I could only have done all of this with the support of my husband, Chris, who is a potter and we are enjoying running our businesses side by side! We live in Worcester and can often be found at art and craft shows and galleries, taking opportunities to meet other designer-makers in the area. Most weekends we either have classes or have stalls at an art & craft market.
The jewellery designs have evolved with extensive experimentation - I love trying new techniques and playing around with the chemistry! I am a member of The Guild of Jewellery Designers. I am happy to chat about commissions if there is something in particular you'd like and I also can include memorial ashes inside jewellery. You might also have noticed some enamelled copper appearing in the shop - glass powder is fused onto copper to create distinctive textures and I am thoroughly enjoying this addition to my jewellery!
I sell via a few gift shops and galleries and at art & craft markets. You can buy online on this website - I am adding products to the shop regularly, so do keep checking back! If you are local to Worcester you are welcome to arrange a time to come and view the selection of jewellery available to buy.
I am really enjoying doing the glass fusing classes in my studio - I've taught over 400 people and the reviews have been lovely! About once a month Chris and I run all-day combined pottery and glass courses including lunch which are great fun and definitely something we would like to develop in the future - see the details of all classes on the Classes page.
