Pauline Holt

Pauline lives in Aylesbury and ‘Jazzy Lily Jewellery’ was established by her as a simple hobby, back in 1993. She began by making bead jewellery from a range of bought-in beads, but her passion now is for making her own, individually crafted, glass beads. Pauline has also written a book on the history of glass beadmaking in the UK

In 2016 Pauline experimented with alcohol inks to create unique abstract paintings. It can be rather messy to use but over the years she has learnt some very interesting techniques and effects.

A couple of years ago Pauline started using small glass delica seed beads to make a different range of jewellery. She never thought she would enjoy using very small beads but some of the colours are fantastic. Whilst she still makes her own lampworked glass beads the delica seed beads allow her to create a completely look to her jewellery collection.
