My Story so far.. ..
My aim is to bring others joy by making memories in the art of gift-giving. I design and handcraft thoughtful, colourful, one-of-a-kind glass pieces created in small batches made with love. I also offer fused glass craft kits and in-person workshops to allow you to unleash your own creativity and give yourself some me-time.
I’m a creative mum who has decided to venture into the big wide world of being self-employed after the birth of my son Sam for the ideal home/work balance for my family by setting up ‘Made by Miriam’ in 2017. This now means colour glass samples, crushed glass frit, clay and glazes surround me instead of an un-inspirational office environment.
I have always been creative since I can remember and I was never far away from my coloured pencils and sketchbooks. One day I was given some silver clay and made a lovely silver pendant for my mum (a little ukulele). This gave me the inspiration to make things once again. I can now provide you with creative gifts you can treasure.
I strive to be as sustainable as possible within my business. When you receive an order from me, it will be wrapped in recycled tissue paper with the option to be gift-wrapped in recyclable brown paper and a gift tag for a personalised note. All packaging is recyclable. I also use any waste glass from the craft kits and other projects in new lovely products.
Fused glass is a zero-waste craft.
