Personalised gifts

It took me 11 hours to set up the studio and gazebo for Art Weeks and two hours to put it all away, hey ho.

The two hours gave me time to think about what to make next. Last week I was asked about a Ruby Wedding Anniversary present / card / gift. It reminded me of the Valentine’s ‘card’ I made for my husband this year. It consists of hearts die cut from copper foil, sandwiched between two pieces of clear glass, fused flat and then slumped to make an S shape. The piece stands up by itself and looks rather lovely.  I will be developing a few ideas that will make pleasing gifts for weddings, anniversaries or other events where a personalised gift is preferred.

Hi My name is Jane and I live in North Oxfordshire, UK. I started making greetings cards and jewellery, progressed to working with stained glass, played with a microwave kiln for small fused glass items and then went all the way with a studio and kiln. I then explored lampworking and enjoy playing with hot glass too.. I have also been a knitter and crochet(ter?) since childhood. I enjoy playing with colour - the brighter the better in my opinion. I attend craft fairs each year in the local area as my glass is attractive face to face. I also run workshops in my garden studio and love to share my skills with others.
