Carl Martin Jewellery Moves to the New Studio in Droxford Hampshire

Over the weekend saw some frantic moving of all equipment and furniture to our new home in the heart of the Hampshire countryside. Since CMJ and Wibbly wobbly glass came into fruition in the early part of 2009 as a full time business we have literally gone from strength to strength.

The new premises at The Old Hambledon Race Course Centre , Wallops Wood , Droxford is certainly in keeping with the image that I wish to convey. Set in the beautiful Hampshire countryside callers can now not only experience exceptional standards of teaching in silver jewellery manufacture and design but also lampworking and dichroic fused glass all under one roof. I couldn't do this without the help of some very important people namely my family and Denise Thereza, who I work with on a daily basis. Denise's speciality is fused glass and lampworking and has perfected her knowledge an skill after graduating from university some 8 yrs ago.

My own expereience has been well documented from the silver and gold that i have continued to explore for the past 14 yrs for the last year or so I have been experiementing with glass both lampworking and now fused.

There is a studio open day set for the 24th April so it would be nice to see old friends and new.

bye for now.
