I have worked full time as a glassmaker for more than 10 years, 6 ago years I finally gave in to my dream of becoming a silver smith!
I'm enjoying discovering the qualities of this new material. I love working with colour, and hand pick all the stones I use in my work.
My favourite, like many people, is Turquoise. I draw great inspiration from the Native jewellery designs of North America and Tibet!
I love to travel and take the opportunity to buy stones when I'm in places such as Thailand,Nepal and India.
I'm lucky enough to live near the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham, and the old Glass Quarter! - that's how I got hooked on glassmaking all those years ago!
I still enjoy making glass, I just can't stop the ideas popping into my head! I try to hire studio time to make as often as possible. I can put together custom orders on request, and I'm happy to discuss any comissions. You will find more and more of my glass here first!, keep a look out for more items and new colours : )

Refunds & Exchanges
I am sure you will love your purchase but if for any reason you are unhappy with it please contact me within 7 days of receipt. If the problem cannot be resolved a full refund will be given, not including my postage costs. As my items are hand crafted and use mainly natural materials it may not always be possible to offer a replacement or duplicate, but I will always do my best to help. Unless an item is faulty, the buyer is responsible for return postage costs and has a statutory duty to ensure the item is returned to me as soon as possible and in good (unworn) condition, in the original packaging. For protection, I recommend the use of an insured/trackable method of return. If required, I will attempt to repair damaged items but this may not always be possible. Please note: Earrings cannot be returned or exchanged for hygiene reasons.
Keeping silver in sealed plastic bags can help reduce tarnishing; cleaning with mild soapy water and/or silver polishing cloths will restore shine. It’s also best to remove your jewellery before swimming or bathing.
