Handmade sterling silver jewellery
My handmade sterling silver jewellery is inspired by texture & movement. My pieces are made to catch the light, to move when you move, and to make them come to life.
I start with an idea plus sterling silver sheet and wire. I cut by hand using a fine-tooth fretsaw, then add a range of textured with hammers, acid, heat etc. A personal favourite is reticulation, bringing the pure silver to the surface to create random relief on the item.
Born and raised in Reading, I work from my Tilehurst home studio. A selection of my jewellery is on display at the Riseley Village Tea Rooms. and at the Berks MS Therapy Centre. Prices shown are a guide for the style shown & are exclusive of UK postage, which is charged at cost. Postage worldwide on request.
Previously displayed at Madejski Hotel, Nicols Beautique & Hair@51. I took part in the 2017 West Berks & North Hants Artist Trail and exhibited at the Newbury Town Hall.
