Welcome to Drifting DownTime

Finding things, making things, starting something, never quite sure how it will end up.

I love driftwood: you see it on the beach and it makes you think. And you pick it up, dust it off, turn it this way and that; lay it out to dry for 2-3 weeks, glancing at it every now and then, studying it, watching as it changes weight, colour, shape, sometimes.

And then…there’s a little shifting of something…..and when you put it down, it’s not back with the other pieces, but on the table, ready…

You can find my pieces – made from driftwood, reclaimed wood and sea pottery, sea glass – and other beach findings – for sale in Leeds city centre at Fabrication, St John’s Shopping Centre, Leeds, and in the beautiful Bronte village in Haworth ay Number 71, 71 Main Street. I also have an online shop with Etsy (see the link in the contacts section).

I am delighted to accept commissions too. The love isn’t only in the making, but in the sending things on their way anew….

Thank you for looking.

    Have been looking for something special to hang on a long sterling silver chain, found it today in Leeds! A beachcomber Aqua sesglass pendant! Would preferred it to have been just the pendant and in sterling silver rather than silver plated with a chain but I love it just the same thank you


    1. Hi Carolyn. Thank you so much for getting on touch, I so appreciate it. In truth, I have considered using sterling silver chains but I’m so conscious of having to increase the overall cost as a result; but it is something I still might do. I do hope you love the pendant – the aqua coloured glass is the most evocative and reminiscent of the sea, I think. Thank you xxx
