Imbolc Swells, Snow and Sunshine

Posted on

I tend to feel spring is starting to spring when I first see a sweet little snowdrop poking through the cold ground. I haven’t seen any yet, although daffodils are beginning to brave the crazy weather. There has been swell for the past few days. It got big yesterday, heavy and mesmerising. When I go […]

Clapping

Posted on

Warning: not even slightly seaglass or jewellery-related… Apparently Clap for Carers started up again last week as Clap for Heroes – I didn’t know, and I don’t think my village partook this time around. There are less of us than in the first lockdown, because the second-home owners don’t find it as appealing in January […]

Inspiration

My latest creations are stacks of seaglass threaded onto silver wire…these are ready for chain now, and I am actually going to keep one for myself this time! When I search Pinterest for ‘back chain’ or ‘back necklace’ I get lots of wedding jewellery…but I love having a dangle at the nape of my neck, […]

Winter surf

Posted on

The surf was great today – light offshores and 3ft plus of clean waves rolling in. Once again I’m not well enough to enjoy it – but I did enjoy watching from the warmth of the pub! The pic is taken when it had dropped off quite a lot. Busy making new jewellery for the […]

Môr a Mynydd – Sea & Slate

Posted on

This summer, I worked with an awesome group of local women to open Sea & Slate Gallery in Llangrannog. Its runaway success is why the Etsy shop and this website have been quiet – I am having trouble making enough jewellery to keep up with demand! Needless to say I am flippin’ delighted with this! […]

World Oceans Day

Posted on

Happy World Oceans Day… Promised myself I’d get out on the water this week; didn’t happen. I wanted to go and take some lovely pictures. I really want to capture the oystercatchers that live around Ysglan – there are usually seven, give or take, every year, and I just think they’re beautiful. One day, I’ll […]

Under Idris’s Clouds

Posted on

A visit to the Cross Foxes near Dolgellau, North Wales. A chilled-out weekend, what a treat. The Cross Foxes is lovey, a really old farmhouse done in the usual re-done style…still got some of the old features like the big open fire, but mostly super crisp lines, wooden floors, local artwork and great views. We […]

Llyn Brianne

Posted on

Llyn Brianne is a stunning place, simply stunning. (Also bitterly cold and windy!) We walked around the RSPB reserve which is also beautiful. The icy cold, clear air and peacefulness was just perfect. Christmas and New Year has left me exhausted from lots of work and too much food, so it’s time to get myself […]
