Each design is unique and created with love, with an emphasis on fun, quirky items aiming to reflect the personality of the wearer.

My first taste of working with silver was a number of years ago at a silversmithing group run by local mental health charity Oxfordshire Mind.
I had been through a tough time and felt I needed to try something creative.
I learned how to make a simple ring from silver and that was the start of my journey, during which I have attended a variety of courses and produced a number of unique, individual items of jewellery.
My first experience of working with PMC was a few years ago.
PMC, or ‘precious metal clay’ is an amazing product consisting of small particles of fine silver, an organic binder and water. The clay can be rolled, moulded or shaped into whatever shape you want. Then, when fired, the organic binder burns away to leave a beautiful fine silver piece ready to be finished and polished.
The first thing I ever made from PMC made was a small round pendant. After firing it just looked like a dull piece of clay. The next step however is where the magic happened. When I placed my pendant on a rubber block and began to scrub it with a wire brush, I began to see the silver shine emerging bit by bit until the whole pendant was gleaming. That was the moment when I became hooked on using PMC.
Since then I have continued developing my skills in both silversmithing and precious metal clay by designing and making unique pieces for myself and for friends and family.
When was put on notice of redundancy from a job that I loved, I looked on this as an opportunity to finally realise my dream of turning my hobby into a career. I found I now had the time to experiment with new designs, and my redundancy money enabled me to buy more materials and produce my very first collection of items for sale.
My mission now is to continually explore my creativity by designing unique, quality products that are inspiring to make and exciting to receive.
Unless stated otherwise, all of my finished items are high quality fine silver (999) and any additional items, such as chains, earring wires and jump rings are sterling silver (925)
