Hello and welcome to my first blog post!

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 www.dragonfireglass.co.uk, and my jewellery go tohttp://www.treasurecraft.co.uk/.

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!
