Friday - lampworking day

This is one of my finished bracelets - I'm very pleased with the way it turned out - I have made another and wear it most days! I also made the toggle clasp myself - it has a hammered finish. This bracelet and two others are currently on the Etsy shop (see links)

This is just a photo I took in the car - I wasn't driving, by the way!

I tried my new glass today - it's baking in the kiln at the moment. One lovely green colour surprised me by going a yukky green - just like that slime that you can get in tubs for children.. I must find out if it was supposed to..

The weather has changed suddenly and I'm now wondering where my slippers are..

Here's what I've been doing this week.. Now available on the Etsy shop (see link)

Hi !

Hello, and welcome to my new blog!

I live in Hampshire, England, and I make lampwork beads whenever I can! I also do a bit of silver work, and love to paint, so I expect those are the things I will be sharing on here.

I've just made a fresh batch of beads, and I'm quite excited about the pendant shaped ones - will be doing more of those I expect.
By the way, we actually got pears on our tree, and they're big! I can't wait!
