Maker's bio

I'm Eleanor, I'm a jeweller and glass maker and I love colour, texture, design and pattern. I work across all of these in a variety of media including fused glass, enamel, silver, copper, anodised aluminium creating my one-off jewellery and glass pieces. I retrained as a jeweller in 2012, and I work with my husband at Rainbow Glass Studios where I thoroughly enjoy teaching weekend courses in glass and enamelling. I believe everyone has creativity and I want to encourage you to explore yours!

Kate reviewed: Fused glass festive Christmas decorations - day course Rainbow Glass Studios

"I came along to the course with my daughter and we had a fantastic day. We both loved the choice of things to make and Eleanor was a wonderful teacher giving us loads of ideas and help when we needed it. We would both thoroughly recommend the course and will be looking to do another one in the future."

Eleanor Designs responded:

" Thank you for coming to my course, it was a delight to have you both with us for the day and to see you create so many decorations and fused glass to your own design ideas too! Can't wait to see you again at a future course! Happy Christmas!"

Samantha Horne reviewed: Glass enamelling on copper for jewellery - day course Rainbow Glass Studios with The Jewellery Boat

"Eleanor is a wonderful tutor - patient, encouraging, creative, very safety conscious (important with kiln work!). She teaches you the basics of enamelling on copper and then shares a variety of decorative techniques, so that you can really let your creativity come out. I love this course so much that I’ve done it twice with different friends - and we’ve had a wonderful time on both occasions. Thanks Eleanor!!"

Louise reviewed: Glass enamelling on copper for jewellery - day course Rainbow Glass Studios with The Jewellery Boat

"Really fun! It was great to be able to walk away with 3 finished pieces, I just wish I had time to try out even more techniques and styles as there were so many different possibilities :D A very well laid out day with good use of time and satisfying results"

Eleanor Designs responded:

" Thank you Louise, it was great to have you here for the day! I’m glad you enjoyed it. Do come back and we’ll work in more of your ideas and other techniques! the possibilities are endless! Hope to see you again soon! Eleanor"
