28th August 2009

Bank holiday weekend - my long holiday is coming to a close. I don't want it to.
I haven't done a fraction of what I wanted to in the last 6 weeks, and I 'm not looking forward to the future right now.
I do hope to get into my conservatory today, as I haven't been in there for the best part of a week - and I miss it.
I did have a lovely day with Shirley on Wednesday, trying out Gaffer chalcedony and Reichenbach multicolour as well as making hollows and other stuff.

Thursday 13th August

Unfortunately the sun is shining today!
As I work in a conservatory, the amount of light and heat is a consideration and I may have to wait until this afternoon so the sun is behind some tall trees in the grounds next to the house.

Friday 7th August

Hey everyone who might be reading my first ever post of my first ever blog! I'm Colette, and I've started this blog to keep track of my bead and jewellery making businesses, interspersed with extracts from my personal life!

I've been making jewellery since 2005, when I found a way in through making seed bead "beadling" creatures. I've been making my own beads since December 2006, when I finally got my own lampworking studio, set up in my conservatory.

For my beads check out, and my jewellery go to

But enough about my beads - I'm more than just a glassaholic! I am married with two teenage children. One has just finished her first year at Durham University, the other his GCSEs. We have two cats and live in the Fens of Lincolnshire. No hills but masses of sky!
