Sabine is a professional lampworker and glass bead maker living near Sheffield, on the edge of the Peak District.
As an artist she is interested in stories, and the words that we choose to tell these stories. Words hold power over almost everybody, evoking dreams, memories and aspirations. Sabine has a love for words – for the strength they can give, for the power inherent in them.
The Wordsmith range features lines and excerpts from some of the best-known authors in history. Love poems, inspirational words, playfulness, they are all accounted for reminding us of who or what we might be, or indeed, who and what we already are.
Whether a classy, simple design with words on a plain and/or etched background, or a more elaborate piece of jewellery with polka dots, vintage roses or curling vines, the words are always the centre of attention.
This range lends itself well to personalisation – University or company mottos, tailored gifts, love tokens can all be created to suit.
Sabine works with both soft and borosilicate glass, combining lampwork and cold working techniques to create a variety of jewellery and sculptural pieces and her work has been published and exhibited through a number of outlets both in the UK and abroad.
