I make a unique range of jewellery and gifts using the ancient technique of lampworking.

Lampworking is an ancient and magical process with a chemistry that boarders on alchemy. All of my glass is melted, blown and shaped on a blowtorch before being placed in a kiln to cool overnight. Every morning I open my kiln to glorious colour, then craft the glass into exquisite jewellery and gifts.

My Creative Journey

I make contemporary glass jewellery and artworks from my garden studio. After studying glass and graphic design in Whanganui, I headed to London where I lived and worked for ten years before coming home to New Zealand to start a family.
