Artists Statement

My artistic passion centres on glass bead making and creating jewellery. As many artists I also have other passions, watercolour painting, quilting, dyeing and painting materials but these now all take a back seat to my bead making obsession.

Each bead is a minature world, fascinating, unique and a little will of the wisp. You can set up the same set of glass colours and metals to create a set of beads but each will be an individual, guided by my hand but not entirely all up to me. There are always beautiful will of the wisp gifts from the heat and the metals in the glass colours.

Reflecting on each creation brings inspiration for the next bead.

So many inspirations and so little time to create them all.
