  • About Mike
    to lampworking all my previous experience in my other artistic endeavors including watercolours pottery and other artistic disciplines Until my retirement I taught art at high school level for almost 30 years I have found lampwork to be a wonderful way to relax and be creative at the same time using the time at the torch to lose myself in my art As a full time glass artist I work six days a week making beads and teach beadmaking in my studio I travel to a number of historic based events to sell my Mancunium beads which are based on extensive research into beads made and found in Britain over the past three thousand years I have I enjoy exploring the roots of beadmaking in Britain and have worked to produce unique and individual beads with a historic heart and a contemporary feel In addition to this every year I am invited by Professor Julian Henderson of the Nottingham University Department of Archaeology to demonstrate beadmaking to archaeology students giving them an understanding of how glass beads are made and various techniques of construction and embellishment I was also invited in 2008 and again in 2009 by the National Museum of Wales to participate in the National Archaeology Week again demonstrating various techniques of beadmaking In 2008 I conducted a two day beadmaking demonstration in the foyer of the Museum in Cardiff and in 2009 I demonstrated beadmaking in the Celtic Village of the St Fagans Museum of Welsh Life I display my historic beads annualy at the Jorvik Viking Festival in York and in 2010 I conducted a beadmaking demonstration at the Medieval Conference at Leeds University A number of my beads are now in handling collections in various locales having been commissioned by a number of interested councils

    walking through ruins over 2000 years old That s what makes us rich Thank you for keeping us going in 2011 4 Comments Sept 27 2011 Truth and Accuracy Posted on 1 23pm Tuesday 27th Sep 2011 Another blog post from last year Bears repeating Truth and Accuracy While browsing today for various things as you do I came across this excellent explanation of tibetan silver http reviews ebay co uk Tibetan Silver Beads I don apos t think so W0QQugidZ10000000002864930 As a consumer economy we are so driven by brand names and the appearance of things that we don t look beneath the surface Oooh it says silver Even silver plate sounds elegant Gold plate wow It s all in the eye and not in the brain In the UK we re very restricted as to what we can use in jewellery if it s sterling or fine silver we cannot have more than 7 5 grams in a piece without sending it off to be hallmarked This adds cost to the item and involves an element of risk if some of the silver in the piece is tested and found to not be as thought We trust our suppliers jump rings and ear wires are only part of the equation Crimps and crimp covers are also liable to be tested and if one element is off then the whole piece of jewellery is rejected The alternative is plated components but who knows what the base metal is under the plate You spend hours designing a piece you put in time and artistic ability and then you have to settle for cheap plated options to avoid being put through the hallmarking mill Alternatives such as plated pewter are great as are the lovely metal dipped and fired Greek ceramic beads since they are plated rather than solid precious metal they aren t put under the stern gaze of the hallmarking process But tibetan silver Blech Who knows what lurks in the heart of much of the stuff It comes mostly from China and unless you want to spend the money getting all your batches tested it s a risk and also it s a bit of a problem because you can t call it silver unless you get it tested and hallmarked On the one hand here in the UK it s great that the hallmarking system is stringent but it does not allow for the new styles of jewellery from artists who use small amounts of silver but are not traditional jewellers It s a challenge to produce an item that has minimal amounts of precious metals which requires creativity but it really galls when there is on the market a proliferation of dubious metal beads and findings under the umbrella of tibetan silver that should be addressed It will protect not only the buyers but the artists too if this stuff were more closely and carefully regulated and tested 2 Comments Sept 26 2011 Dawning Moments Posted
