About

Although I enjoyed drawing, I wasn’t particularly good. Imagine my delight when I discovered the possibility of bringing things to life with wire!

I come from a long line of artists, my Great, Great Grandfather was Frank Paton, well known for his realistic portrayal of both wild and domestic animals using oil paints, but he is probably more fondly remembered for his pencil etchings. Many other family members have continued the tradition of painting and drawing.

I have always loved working with semi precious stones and wire, for many years I have experimented with different ways of combining the two. I was inspired by the designer Eni Oken who has helped me to harness the natural beauty of the stones and compliment them with silver wire work.

Each piece has lots and lots of hand coiled wire, no glue or solder is used just ancient methods of coiling and weaving.


My Work

I now divide my time between making jewellery and writing tutorials for my designs, if there is a piece that you have seen and would like to learn how to make, but can't find the tutorial, just let me know and I will see what I can do. I am also a freelance writer for 'Making Jewellery' magazine and have had several projects published.

In 2009 I launched my business, working full time on my jewellery. A daunting step but one that I have never regretted.

In 2010 I started writing my first book, Wire Jewelry Mastrclass, which is published by The Guild of Master Craftsmen and was released in October 2011, available directly from me or from any major book or craft retailer around the world.

Although my business is primarily online, in 2012 I started doing live demonstrations at Tutbury castle and other historical events of Viking kit chain making, also known as triconopoly.


I am constantly on the hunt for new inspiration and fresh ideas and my current adventure is into the world of 3D construction.

We can deliver overseas, but please be aware that delivery time may be longer and certain conditions may apply. Please contact us if you have any queries.

Copyrights 2008 Abby Hook

Note to EU customers - The European Union implemented new rules on value-added tax (VAT) for digital items earlier this year. The rules, which took effect on January 1, 2015, state that VAT on digital items delivered via automatic download will be taxed based on the country where the buyer is located, not where the seller is located. The rules apply to any shop selling digital items that can be automatically downloaded at the time of purchase to buyers in the EU, no matter where the shop is located. To be clear, EU buyers – not Etsy or Etsy sellers – will be paying VAT as part of their total purchase price.
Refunds and Exchanges
Cancellation/refunds
Tutorials are not refundable due to the nature of the product. However if you are having any difficulties at all please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to help in any way I can.

You may cancel your Jewellery order for any reason up to 14 days after you receive the goods (the statutory minimum is 7 days). Notice of cancellation should be sent to abbyjewellery [!at] googlemail.com - cancellations must be received in writing. Goods must be returned in the original condition and shipped at your cost. The goods must be securely wrapped and packaged before shipping in the original packaging or similar equivalent. Once the returned goods have been received and checked, you will be issued a full refund, usually via the same payment method used for purchase (e.g. paypal refund, cheque etc.).
