I am Jo Cross and I am a fused glass, PMC and freeform beading artist.

My background starts at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, where I worked as a theatrical costumier for 20 years. 

I started ‘Joolry’ as a hobby and then quickly came to love the art of bead weaving, especially free form beading.  I have also recently moved into the art of fusing glass and working with Precious Metal Clay (PMC) to make unique jewellery pieces. 

I have been commissioned to create one-off pieces for weddings and special events where people need that certain unique something to finish the look.  I also make many pieces for sale at the various art events and online that I now take part in.

‘Doodle Crafts’ is a re-kindling of my love of fabrics and sewing where I enjoy designing and making many different hand finished patchwork quilts using my extensive sewing skills.
