Contemporary glass beads, jewellery and lampwork glass beadmaking tuition

 Welcome to my website.

Here you can browse in my gallery and you can shop for my lampworked glass beads & jewellery. All my work is individually handcrafted by me in West Sussex.

I am one of the few glass beadmakers and lampworking teachers in this country.  I make my glass beads using traditional lampworking techniques but with modern equipment in my dedicated glass studio.  I use the finest Venetian, German or American glass to make the beads and pair them with sterling silver.  Lampworking is the process of melting coloured glass rods around a steel mandrel using a high temperature flame.  The beads are then annealed in a digitally controlled kiln over many hours for durability.


Please email me for details about lampworking tuition or if you would like to buy any of the beads or jewellery you have seen on my site, or if you would like a bead made especially for you.
