Please introduce yourself and your brand….
I’m Elisa and welcome Shake Your Glass! I hand craft glass jewellery and home ware using the traditional skill of flame work and modern technique of glass fusing. Working from my home studio in Portsmouth I take my inspiration especially from birds and express this in my glass through colours and textures.
How would you describe your style and your creations?
My unique jewellery range is distinctive colourful and quirky. I love to make my customers feel confident and individual. My quality home ware collections will freshen up your style and bring an eye catching focus to your living spaces.
What do you enjoy most about your work?
Experimenting like a mad scientist to develop new designs and helping customers make their ideas a reality.
What can we expect to find on your stall at The Fairy Tale Fair Brighton this May? And are you looking forward to taking part?
A collection of my dichroic jewellery, you will love the statement rings!, gadgets including bottle openers along with my new favourite make, tree textured trinket dishes!
Do you have any plans or ambitions for the future?
I am working towards a larger workshop space like an industrial unit so I can be as messy as I like in the studio and still have a tidy space to hold regular workshops.
Do you have a motto or inspirational quote?
I have loads! but most importantly “never give up” you will always make mistakes but I have certainly learnt from mine and risk taking is fun because sometimes it works out!
How can we find out more about you?
