Jewellery and lampwork glass
by Catherine Allen

Sterling Silver Jewellery


I now have a section devoted to my growing collection of sterling silver brooches, necklaces, bangles and rings. Larger pieces are hallmarked and bear my makers mark "cma". I also make the larger clasps and earwires for my lampwork glass jewellery.







As a lampwork bead maker, I create my own  glass beads and combine them with hand forged sterling silver to make unique pieces of jewellery. I wind the beads from melted glass in an intense flame often adding fine silver to the surface or etching them in acid for a matt fossilised feel. 

My jewellery is available to buy online here or from the Bircham Gallery in Holt, Norfolk, or in Suffolk at the Snape Gallery at Snape Maltings, the Jessica Muir Gallery in Long Melford, Wiston Gallery in Nayland, Gainsborough's House in Sudbury and Gallery 2 in Ipswich. I also have items for sale in the Stained Glass Museum in Ely Cathedral, in Cambridgeshire. See my stockist list for full details.

I am also a member of the Suffolk Craft Society and will be taking part in their Annual Summer Exhibition at the Peter Pear's Gallery in Aldeburgh. More details on my Exhibitions page.


Hand Painted Plates


If you are looking for a gift for the home, look no further than my handpainted plates. My brightly painted Seaside plates have been gracing the downstairs loos of East Anglia and beyond for 17 years now and are as popular as ever.
