Couple in their boat Location: Birmingham

Meet Pam and Andy

"For a long time Andy and I wanted to make the transition from land to water but before we did, we wanted to have something to do on the boat. Maybe not the obvious choice, but we started creating fused glass jewellery – I’d always made jewellery and Andy is interested in the science behind it. Our first day trading was actually at the Olympics and it went from there!  

We’re making the full move onto the boat soon and it’s hard to know what to do with all our ‘stuff’. When you’re on a boat you probably won’t need your ball gown, but what do you do with it? It’s hard to decide what stays and what goes. But when I’m on the boat, I’m happy with what I have, especially when I am surrounded by beautiful jewellery all day."
