Bright and bold, with all sorts of Spring flower colours! This multi stone necklace is a real statement piece, and with a combination of matte and facetted stones it has a touch of sparkle too.

About

Unique Designs Hand Crafted in Silver

After completing my jewellery degree, I spent some time working in a local jewellers whilst also undertaking some commissions and making my own jewellery. Eventually, towards the end of 2008, I decided to set up my own business making and selling my own work, which is when I started Nanuk Jewellery. The name Nanuk comes from my logo; I knew I wanted a logo before I knew what I wanted to call myself! After coming up with my little bear, I did some research and discovered that nanuk is an Inuit word for polar bear, and that suddenly seemed to fit, so my bear became Nanuk and I became Nanuk Jewellery.

I started off working mostly in sterling silver and using a lot of semi-precious beads and stones with silver wire, until I came up with some ideas I couldn't quite manage to make come to life using those methods, which is when I started experimenting with Art Clay Silver. After a slow start, I found I really enjoyed working with the metal clay, especially the freedom it gave me to experiment with new ideas which just wouldn't be feasible using traditional silversmithing methods, and now much of my work is created using metal clay. I still like to incorporate stones and beads to add colour and detail to my work, and I am starting to experiment with enamelling to create even more new ideas.

Over the past few years, I have also gotten back into using polymer clay, something I had worked with when I was younger. I started making steampunk-inspired creations and dragon jewellery, and rather than keep it up as a hobby I decided to give these new creations a showcase of their own, so in 2013 I set up Nanuk Designs. I love being able to work on something completely different with Nanuk Designs whilst keeping up a hobby I enjoy, and I have found that working in the polymer clay has frequently given me ideas for new ways in which to use the metal clay. I am working on ways in which I might be able to combine the two jewellery styles.

I frequently work on commissions for wedding or personalised jewellery, including my personalised silver guitar plectrums. Much of my work has begun with ideas I have come up with through working on a commission for someone, including many of the silver animals in my 'menagerie', and I am always looking for new suggestions! Feel free to get in touch with me to discuss making something unique for yourself or as a gift, or just to offer a suggestion for a new animal to add to my collection.
