BA (Hons) Silversmithing & Jewellery
Hello friends & welcome to my website.
Here's a little bit about me and the jewels...
I'd been making beaded jewellery for a number of years before finding myself on the Silversmithing & Jewellery degree down at Truro College. It was a tough old degree, but so much fun, I then decided making shiny jewels full time was the life for me.
The designs are influenced by my incredible surroundings here in Cornwall, mainly the rugged coast of North Cornwall and countless wanderings into the stunning hinterland. Love love love being outdoors, especially now I have my beautiful doggie Bramble in tow, everyday out there is an inspiration.
The techniques and tools I use are traditional & practically unchanged over the centuries. My Grandad used to dabble in a lil bit of silversmithing and I'm so lucky to have a few of his old tools in the workshop, they get used a lot and help me out everyday.
My absolute fave method to use when making jewellery has to be melting silver. The textures and forms that can be created from molten silver are just amazing and turn out different every time.
What's new for 2023?
This year I aim to streamline the biz so I can focus on some fabulous new designs, it's been a long time coming, but I have some wonderful new ideas in the pipeline.
