Welcome to Stained Arts & Crafts
by Julia Lloyd-Jones
My passion is to make stained glass even more beautiful.
Then comes the excitement of sharing enjoyment of the continual varying colours and textures that glass gives, with the ever-changing light conditions, whether it be natural or electric lighting, adding a whole new element to the creation and sharing the natural beauty with you.
My husband was stuck for a Christmas present one year so he decided to start me on an art course, so art then became my hobby between my nursing, sport and family life. During those 12 years I exhibited with the Society of Eastbourne Artists, Eastbourne Open Houses and Friends of Eastbourne Hospitals with paintings and mosaics, however since 2017 I transitioned to stained glass and now also exhibit with the Hailsham Artists Network.
Since leaving my nursing career in 2017 I have been working with stained glass making a variety of lead but mainly copper foiled (Tiffany style) picturesque landscapes inspired by the Sussex landscape, novel ornaments, sun catchers, seasonal items, pictures and cards for a variety of local craft shops.
