Caroline was so helpful and accommodating, listing an itemI had been searching for. The bangle arrived quickly and well packaged. It’s so pretty and excellent quality. The perfect gift for an 18th birthday.
Welcome to Bilberry and Birch
Bilberry and Birch is based in Northumberland, in the north east of England.
It's a beautiful, wild part of the country, with very varied landscapes, from the dramatic coastline to remote moorland, from wildflower meadows to mysterious forests. These landscapes are the inspiration for my jewellery collections.
Making jewellery used to be a hobby, but it's now become something of a full-time occupation. I work mainly with silver, copper, sea glass & ceramic, and semi-precious stones, using traditional methods and techniques. Each piece of jewellery from Bilberry and Birch is individually made by hand. No two pieces are ever quite identical, and many of my designs are one-offs.
I'm very interested in the mythology that surrounds the natural world, and my designs often have a symbolic meaning based on the subject that inspired them, and the materials that I use.
You can find out more about the inspiration behind my designs by following me on my blog, and on social media.
I'm an ex-librarian, turned jewellery designer and maker, living and working in rural Northumberland. I learned the basics at Leeds College of Art, and I've been developing my skills through trial and a little bit of error ever since.

There are some exceptions, which are sent using First Class Signed For. These will take a little longer to arrive. This will be made clear within the individual listing, and you will be offered the opportunity to purchase a shipping upgrade.
