Creative handmade jewellery and gifts

Welcome

There are two things work wise that I enjoy, one is jewellery making and the other is working with children. I am passionate about both.

I started working with jewellery from my love of making things from drawing and painting to sewing and general crafting. During my time working in a school as a nursery nurse then as a nanny I have always provided children with lots of creative arts and crafts.

It was some years after having my own children that saw a course in college about designing and making jewellery. I decided to have a go and loved it where I gained my BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma and 5 distinctions. As a person who has dyslexia I felt this was a great achievement.

Now I work from my studio on the out skirts of London close to Hampton Court.
I take my inspiration from natures surroundings. A lot of the time its through plants and flowers that hold amazing colours or trees with their wonderful tree bark patterns. Sometimes on a day trip to the coast I find there's nothing better than looking at pebbles or rugged cliff rocks with wild grasses and flowers that grow along the edge.

I like to work using line, form, texture and a little colour mostly in a contemporary style. Techniques that I use are hot enamel, tube setting and forming. I also use Keum Boo which is a technique of adding 24ct gold on to the surface of silver. This method gives the wearer a light touch of pure gold. I also use Eco 9ct gold and Eco 18ct gold.

I work with Eco sterling and Eco fine silver whenever possible as I am very conscious about the environment which I like to reflect in my work.

My new boxes and packaging have a FSC mark which guarantees that all materials come from an FSC forest giving better protection for animals and plant life.

Lots of things will continue to inspire me, from the past to the present day which you may see reflected through my work. Please enjoy taking a look through my shop.

Thank you.
