My name is Helen Mitchell and I live in Deeping St James near Peterborough. I have been beadmaking since December 2005, my husband bought me a starter kit for Christmas after I had been hinting for several months after seeing a demonstration at a bead fair. I started off with a basic kit and a hot head torch in my dining room and quickly I knew this for me. I have since progressed to a high tech studio and equipment perfect for quality lampwork
This is me, I hate having my picture taken so I always pull silly faces!!
I work part time in a school so have most of the school holidays off and now get lots of time to embrace my love of melting glass.
Here is my studio
and here is some of my equipment
as you can see I am creative but busy busy!!
I am married to Jason and we have four girls between us, they are now young adults and we are very proud of them. I also love my pets too I have a mad border collie called Mags, one rather crazy black cat called ru, cuddly ragdoll cat called Spot and Sweet quiet Blaze .
Spot who likes to sit on whatever I am about to do and never stops talking!!
Crazy Ru who loves Jess next door.
Mad Madge who likes to round up the whole family and watch ducks!!!
Blaze quiet sweet little boy
