Contemporary hand made glass beads. I create each bead individually in a flame, they then grow into unique pieces of jewellery. I started life as a glass blower and have gradually began working in a smaller scale to work more intricately with colour. Enjoying superposing the light of juicy transparent glass, and the deep pithy intensity of opaque colours. By peeling through these layers its possible to create edible fruit like seeds – chilli pepper and pomegranate, kiwi and prickly pear….spikey gooseberry or peppery damson.
