Hello and welcome to my website.
My name is Lesley Jane Nixon and I have been an art glass bead designer for 18 years.
The story of my little studio only began in May 2019, so this is the latest exciting chapter of my creative career.
As well as making glass beads, I design glass, silver, copper and enamel jewellery. All designs are original and hand crafted with great care and attention to detail in my little studio in the town of Leek, Staffordshire.
I draw inspiration for my glass beads and jewellery from all things natural. My local landscape, The Roaches in the Peak District, flowers, trees and animals .... I especially adore the love and humour that animals bring to our lives and I love to bring this through with playful designs such as my cats and chickens.
After graduating with a Foundation Degree at Distinction level from Leek School of Art, I have also found a new love for 2D techniques, such as landscape painting, photography and printmaking.
Whether it be a bespoke piece of jewellery or something to cheer up your walls at home,
I hope that a purchase from my studio lifts your spirits and makes you feel that little bit special.
