My Bracelet was fantastic and made to my specifications. Communications with the maker were answered very quickly. You will never find something so beautiful in a store.

About

The Slinkiest of Lizards!

I have no idea where the name Slinky Lizard came from, I had been trying to come up with something original for a while, but nothing was feeling quite right. I had a wooden lizard on my wall, so maybe he had something to do with it, the name just popped into my head one day and stuck.
Well that was about 6 years ago, and my jewellery has changed quite a bit in that time and is always evolving as I try out new mediums and learn new techniques.
Most pieces start out as just sheet and wire and maybe a stone or fossil, I love the whole process of transforming something plain into something beautiful. I may start off with a sketch of what I'm going to make, but often a piece will gain a life of it's own as it takes shape on my bench. I mostly use old fashioned hand tools, sawing everything by hand with a jeweller's saw, then filing and sanding, soldering the pieces together and finally polishing. All that filing and sanding is laborious, but it's this that gives a piece of hand crafted jewellery it's unique quality. I think the feel of a piece of jewellery is equally as important as the look of it
I try at all times to be as environmentally friendly as i can. All the silver and other metal I use in my designs is recycled and I also melt down my scrap pieces and reuse them. Where I use stones, I like to know where they have come from and usually buy from rock hounds who have actually picked up the rough rock and hand cut and polished it themselves. This means your finished piece of jewellery is not only unique and hand crafted, the stone is as well!
