About Bricolage

Bricolage

I'm a collector, sea glass, beads, materials,wools and make or decorate whatever idea comes to mind.

I used to be a woodturner and loved it but on retirement and moving to a small house by the sea I no longer had a workshop or the muscle to continue. On my beach walks I soon found sea glass washed up from an ancient bottle factory long since gone and couldn't resist collecting them. My first idea was decorating some of the plain white tiling in my bathroom, I loved their colours and after grouting they looked pretty good, I did the same on vases and plant pots. Then I inherited a collection of beads and chains from a dear lady who was giving up on her life of beading and inspired by Gaudi I started mixing all these textures. I love finding a beautiful shaped vase or bowl at a charity shop and transforming it with rich colours. Of course I had to make suncatchers with sea glass or glass beads I really enjoy those. Having sewn all my life I also make big flower cushions and some proggy mats. It may seem a strange mixture but being retired, I love having the time to try different ideas. I was selling at a local craft market but of course that is closed now and my little workroom is bursting. PS. Yes I do have cats!
