About me

Location Wales, United Kingdom
Introduction Hi, I’m Julie and I write to create a community of people who love lampwork beads and glass art. I started making lampwork beads in 2006 and have been blogging about my journey through the pain of everyday life and how that impacts creativity. For me that pain was brought into focus by a series of miscarrages. It is often through the furnace of pain we learn more of who we are and I long to see people work through their pain and become the people they are created to be. I have 12 years experience of working in mental health as an Occupational Therapist. I have been creative as long as I can remember making everything from jewellery to card, wedding dresses to cakes. I have learned and experienced how much art and creativity can heal pain. To contact me, please email julie @ juliemerrett .co.uk
