From start to Finish Nina is amazing, Nina repaired my inner porch stain glass. She repaired it with a new pain matched the pattern. Brough the window back to life as it would have looked 100 years ago its so sparkly I can’t stop looking at it. Would recommend Nina to anyone. Clean, tidy, good communication, good price. Her passion shines through my window everyday xxx

We approached Nina to talk about commissioning a stain glass window for an unusual triangular window. We knew we wanted it to celebrate our children, 2 of whom died when little. It had to be perfect and something we would be happy to see on a daily basis but not be gloomy or sad. We decided to chose our children’s birth flowers as the window overlooks our garden. Apart from giving Nina the flowers and the feeling we wanted it to give we left the rest to her. Nina said she’d do 3 initial ideas but as soon as we saw the 1st one we knew it was perfect. Nina spent time with us, met our family including our grandchildren on various visits to us. She listened to us talking about our beloved daughters- Sarah and Hannah and looked at photos of them. Above all Nina was gentle, understanding, kind and so easy to talk to. She explained the processes involved and gave us ideas (such as the stunning grasses along the base of the window). We look at the window so many times a day as we pass and it just sits right in our hearts snd makes us smile. If you considering asking Nina to produce a piece for you, we would say “do it, you won’t be disappointed “. Thank you Nina for everything, your talent is astounding xx

Nina repaired and renovated an original stained glass door in our house and she did a fabulous job. She removed and collected the window, repaired it, replaced broken pieces and re leaded the window. She then brought it back and fitted it. It looks amazing and is good as new. It makes me smile every time I see it. Thank you Nina! I would really recommend her for all your stained glass needs.

Really pleased with the restoration job Nina did on my 1930’s front door glass. The colour matching was great, all the leadwork was perfect, and now if my dog stands in the right spot on a sunny day, her head looks multicoloured. Thanks Nina!

I would like to say how delighted I am with the stained glass Nina has made for me. She was endlessly patient as we swapped pictures and ideas until the idea in my head was on paper ~ no easy task!! She talked me through the process, providing updates as she went along…fascinating. The finished glass is beautiful, carries a message and I think the person it is destined for will be absolutely over the moon. Thankyou Nina 🙂
