OK, me? What would you like to know?
My name is Chrissy, I live in Banbury in Oxfordshire with my partner and my two children, my oldest living in Yorkshire. I LOVE motorbikes and own a few and love that I can ride to and from work every day, well apart from when it snows! This is me 🙂
I work part-time with stained glass and part-time as an Admin Assistant for a drainage firm.
I started working with stained glass earlier this year after a fruitless search for some purple candle holders. I figured it couldn’t be too hard and I’d give it a try myself so bought a few basic tools, some glass and set to learning. I’ll readily admit my first few pieces were a bit rubbish but practice and working at it soon had me making some of the things I wanted. Here is the candle holder I made, as you can see it’s purple 🙂
After the candle holders were finished I looked around for something else to make and while browsing the internet came across some tattoo designs which I thought would look great made in glass and wire. A quick shopping spell online got me all the bits and pieces I thought I’d need and my Stars & Swirls and Stars & Curls Suncatchers were born.
Many other Star designs were to follow as can be seen on my website
At this point something kind of important happened, two girls on my girls motorcycle forum, Bike Girl, bought two of my Stars pieces and Ravens Stained Glass was born. I registered with a couple of online shopping outlets and started to list my stained glass pieces and they sold! People actually liked my work enough to buy it! I was amazed and very grateful and have not looked back since.
