"Time to start my own business"!

After spending five years in the Caribbean we decided to return to Great Britain in 2002. My husband Alan and I decided that it was time to do our own thing so we opened a gift shop in the lovely market town of Hexham in Northumberland. Within two years and with much persuasion I had started to experiment with my hobby of "leading" glassware and was soon selling my own product in our shop.                                                

 

Wildflower Studio was born!

This really gave me the confidence to pursue Wildflower Studio full-time so we sold the shop and became a genuine cottage industry; our home was never to be the same again.

After more than two years of chaos at home we opened our first studio, where we produced more variations on our designswith the input of our regular customers and studio visitors.

 

Back to our home.

In June 2009 we decided it was time to return to Hexham to open GIFT our studio/shop where we will continue to develop our business back where it all started, after all, there’s no place like home!

 

The response to my work over the last few years has been tremendous; people have been kind enough to praise and purchase my work and contributed ideas which have inspired finished designs.

I do hope you enjoy looking atmy work as much as I have enjoyed designing and making them.
