Jewellery - Fused Glass and Silver

I've been making glass and silver jewellery, necklaces, earrings, bracelets and brooches.  I use coloured and transparent glass, fuse it with Dichroic glass and fine silver, and use sterling silver mounts and fixings. 

I'm aiming to use colour and sparkle to lift, glisten, dazzle and effect mood enhancing change.  After all what is jewellery for?

Lustred dishes - tiny delicacies

I have been playing with the effects I can get from using Lustres on glass.  Tiny experiments, giving me joy and delight.  Hope you like them too....

Chandelier Style Earrings 2020

I was inspired to make these earrings after a glimpse of a shape, a curiosity to see whether I might be able to make something like that shape with fused glass.

Fused glass, I'm making jewellery, pictures, vessels but often something else entirely. I'm exploring, learning, surprised & delighted with glass.

I studied at Ravensbourne Art College, then 3D Design at Leicester Polytechnic (now De Montfort University) where I first blew glass. A lifetime of creativity later, I find I’m again working with glass.
