I have been a jewellery maker and lamp work artist since 1997 and have been working with glass as my medium for over twenty years. Over this period of time I have worked in fabricating stained glass panels, etched glass, copper foil lampshades and kiln formed vessels. The two favourite ways of expressing my art is working over an open flame creating lamp worked glass beads and weaving unique pieces of jewellery, which is now wearable art, quite often incorporating my handmade silver work.
My three loves have all been brought together here in ‘Botanical’. Handmade forged silver pieces representing vine meander through my unique floral lamp work beads, gemstones and Japanese seed beads, hand woven together making a very bold statement.
