Challenge theme: Ravishing Reds

I began silversmithing in 2005 - two years later, our local college stopped doing courses, and I was stuck for a creative pursuit. I started lampworking after a trip to Venice, and about one year in, began to specialise of sculptural glass beads. I love making roses and butterflies, but I never say no to a challenge, and these lips seemed to fit the 'Ravishing Reds' challenge title.

 

I still make jewellery, often combining silversmithing and wire work with my own beads. I'm lucky to have had a few tutorials in magazines, which has been a rewarding experience. I teach glass bead making, too - both beginners and special 'sculptural' lessons for more advanced bead makers - in my studio north of Sheffield.

 

You can find my beads, jewellery and more information about teaching at www.littlecastledesigns.co.uk and my bridal range, including tiaras, cake toppers and bridal jewellery, at www.nowforevermore.com
