The legend of the Wishing Stick –
A small boy, Tom, who found a piece of coloured glass in the mill Race in Wheathampstead in 1926. He made a wish which came true and he kept the piece of glass for the rest of his life believing that it had the ability to focus his thoughts on what he had wished for.
These are created by Becky hot fixing Angelina Fibres & plant dyed wool from Northumberland along with other natural and iridescent fibres, which is then encased in glass & soldered by Ivor.
Becky creates 30x5 cm images which reflect local themes currently these include:
Riverbank & Meadow
Sea & beach-scape
in addition to the '3 wishes' Wishstick
These are created by Becky hot fixing Angelina Fibres & plant dyed wool from Northumberland along with other natural and iridescent fibres, which is then encased in glass & soldered by Ivor forming the angels body.

New framing technique
Becky has managed to source glass placemats which has allowed her to create pictures in a frameless piece of glass with a narrow black border that can also be used for special occasions as a centre piece placemat as it is made from heat resistant glass.
These are created by Becky fusing Angelina Fibres & plant dyed wool from Northumberland along with other natural and iridescent fibres, the resultant image being enclosed in heat resistant glass.
Becky creates 8cm square abstract images and in addition images which reflect local themes,
Currently these include:
Sea & beach-scape

If you want an everlasting momento of something special to you, let us put it into an angel or heart for you.
This could be from a favourite outfit that a child has outgrown, a special occasion dress such as a wedding dress, prom dress etc. or an item of clothing of someone you have lost such as a tie, jumper etc.
The image to the right is a Memory Angel created using raw silk from a Wedding Dress.
Perfect as a gift at a wedding, anniversary etc.
Valentines / Mothers Day
If you want an everlasting momento for these 2 occasions or Birthday etc, why not treat that special person to a heart image or a 'heart shaped' suncatcher.
The ‘Angelina Heart’ images are
made by fusing Angelina Fibres and plant
dyed wool from Northumberland, which
is then used with a heart shape or heart shaped mount to make that unique gift.
In addition Ivor has created the lovers heart, angelina hearts and stained glass hearts
