Suzanne Tweddle

Suzanne Jewellery

Lampwork artist Suzanne Tweddle’s studio is situated in the beautiful market town of Barnard Castle from which she designs and hand makes glass beads, buttons, baubles and jewellery using a technique known as lampworking – ‘the art of  making small objects from glass rods melted in the flame of a torch’.

“Lampworking is a technique that enables me to design and individually make beautiful glass beads with intricate detail, making each bead unique. Colour is what inspires my designs, from the brightest oranges to the coolest blues. The combinations evolve through experimentation inspired by nature, fabrics and fashion.”

Suzanne's discovery and exploration of the art of lampworking has drawn her towards the use of glass as a medium to incorporate into her jewellery designs to inject colour and contrast to the silver and other materials used.

Suzanne also runs lampworking workshops from her studio in Barnard Castle.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 37 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
