It's Been Too Long!

I can't believe I've neglected this poor blog - and so much has been happening too!  Perhaps that's the reason why.  I've just been reflecting on what has been a great year on the glassy front.  I was lucky enough to win the stringing section of the GBUK annual competition, with this my entry Juno's Friend. I was obviously delighted and am already thinking about 2013s entry.

As if that weren't enough I actually managed to win the Lampwork section of the Jewellery Maker of the Year Competition held by Beads and Beyond Magazine.  I have to admit I shed a little tear on hearing the news.  The piece I entered was quite tricky to make, but I'm pleased I persevered with it.  I've also been lucky enough to attend a couple of courses, one with Bronwen Heilmann who came over from the States and the other with Amanda Muddimer who came up from her own studio to deliver a course at Tuffnells glass.  They were both fantastic and I learnt loads of really useful tips.

So I'm here wondering what next year will have to offer on the glassy front?  If its halve as good as this year it will be great!


  1. Here's to a new year of fresh ideas and creativity and more blogging too- love your work Gay

  2. Oh thank you Chris! I hope to add updates - but then I'm the worlds best procrastinator! :)
