I have now finished all my events for 2018. It's been an amazing season, and I want to say a big thank you to everyone who came along to the Christmas fairs and markets and supported small businesses this year. I appreciate every single sale of my handmade jewellery, and hope to see you again in 2019.
My first craft event in the new year will be Knutsford Makers Market on Sunday 3rd February, by which time I will have been back at my lampwork torch to make lots more handmade glass goodies.
Thank you again, and I wish you a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.
Contemporary lampwork glass jewellery by glass artist and designer Carolyn Grant.
Handmade in my home studio in Cheshire, England, I create sterling silver earrings, necklaces and bracelets using my own handcrafted lampwork glass beads. Formed in a hot flame using a propane and oxygen powered torch, each lampwork bead is individually handmade and unique. My lampwork glass forms the focal part of my jewellery designs, each one a tiny little work of art. There is something hypnotic about working with hot glass, manipulating it in the flame and using a combination of heat and gravity to control the flow and create something beautiful. I learn something new every time I fire up my torch, and hope that my fascination with glass translates into my jewellery.
