Checkout is not working

Checkout has just broken - you can view your order and get a shipping quote, but if you click Review Order you'll be taken to a nonexistent page. I have been meaning to do a full overhaul of this website for a while, and this is as good a reason as any to get on with it. The site may be down for a while when I do that.

In the meantime, I can send Paypal invoices if you email with what you wanted to buy, in what quantity, and your shipping address.

Welcome to Heather Kelly Glass

My name's Heather Kelly - I make jewellery and my own artisan lampwork glass beads. Come and have a look around!

I sometimes put my beads (and gremlins!) in the Facebook bead groups - you can see my work and links to any recent auctions at Heather Kelly on Facebook and on my business page at Heather Kelly Glass on Facebook. If you want sneak previews of what I've been up to first, check out my Flickr.

GBUKfair on Sat 19th Sept 2015

I will be at GBUKfair this Saturday with glass, murrini, gremlins and jellyfish.

Saturday 19th September from 10am
Long Sutton Barns, Lincolnshire, PE12 9AF -


Flame Off - 11-13 April 2014

I will be attending the UK Flame Off on April 11-12 and the bead fair afterwards on Sunday 13th.

As last year, I'll have beads, glass and murrini at one end of the GBUK stand. Hope to see you there! I've been stocking up on my gremlin beads to bring with me :)

Flame Off info. This year it is being held at Uttoxeter Racecourse (ST14 8BD), which is right next to Uttoxeter Station and off the M1. Open 10.00am - 5.00pm.

Happy new creative year to all!

I'm open again, and plan to be listing some of my murrini for sale over here as well as on Etsy this year.

For some quick eye candy, here's a necklace I made as a present just before Christmas - the beads are TAG fire lotus encased with Lauscha soft clear.


Christmas closing

My shops will be on holiday from midnight on Mon 17th Dec to Weds 2nd Jan. So if you want to treat yourself to any glass, beads, or murrini before January, order before midnight on Monday!

(By the way, if anyone is wanting murrini from my Etsy shop as well as glass, I can refund the Etsy shipping and send them together. Just let me know - put a note in with whichever order you make first so I know to wait for the second!)

Tutorial and at GBUK AGM


I have a tutorial in the upcoming October/Halloween issue of the Soda Lime Times. Released 15th Sept. Grinning Gremlins, suitable for Beads of Courage. The Soda Lime Times has also had a rather nice tutorial in the August edition featuring Lauscha olive - if you didn't see that, the back-issues are very reasonably priced!

Here are a few of my gremlins. I've been selling my eye murrini on Etsy (more to come).


I will be at the GBUK AGM on Sat 29th Sept with glass and gremlin eye murrini to sell. We're holding it at Enderby Civic Centre near Leicester. This is right next to Di East's studio, who will have demos and torch time available during the day. Details here.

As usual, I'll bring along orders - place them by 7pm the day before. I can't physically bring all my colours now, so if there's anything in particular you're after, let me know!

Di East Open Day, 16th June

I'll be bringing Lauscha glass and my beads, toppers and earstuds along to Diana East's open day on Saturday 16th June.

Location: Studio 19, The Old Dairy
George Street
LE19 4NQ
Directions to Studio 19.

I'm attending a course with Astrid Riedel the three days before, so any orders placed after 11pm tonight will be dealt with when I get home.

Birds of Paradise

A little something I'm working on - I'm trying to make beads with birds of paradise on them. Why did I choose birds of paradise? Because they have beautiful bright plumage, there are a whole range of species, and they're a handy jumping-off point for going entirely fantastical!

It's trial and error at the moment - when I get something I like, I can't necessarily duplicate that next time! I'm still working out what to do for the backgrounds vs different body colours, as you want them to show up but not steal focus.

Here's what I have so far from first to most recent. The style's a bit all over the place!

Beads for sale coming soon!

Just a note to say that there will be beads, BHBs, buttons, pendants and interchangeable ring toppers appearing on here for sale in the next couple of days!

My Etsy store has most of them: see the little widget to the left for a preview.
