Inspired by nature, our ancestors, the sacred British landscape and its folklore & mythology.

I have been fascinated by the nature, mythology, folklore, magic and spirituality of the British Isles all my life. My work is inspired by nature, the art passed down by our ancient ancestors and those who have settled in Britain. In particular I am drawn to the inscriptions found on British Iron and Bronze Age metalwork, the art of the Celts the Picts and Vikings and the rock art of our prehistoric ancestors.

I am lucky enough to have lived in Kent, Wiltshire and Dorset surrounded by some of the most important and sacred ancient monuments in Britain.

I first began sculpting in clay and combining art and metalwork over 30 years ago when I gained an A Level in art sculpture.

I now create fine silver pieces suitable to be worn by both Men and Women using PMC (Precious Metal Clay)* and Poppets and pendants made from (CPC), a type of clay used by doll and puppet makers**.

*The PMC I use for my silver is a medium in which fine silver particles are suspended in an organic binder. It can be worked much like any other clay. Once a piece is complete and has been left to dry I fire it by hand at a very high heat. When the piece begins to glow orange the binder burns away and the silver particles fuse to each other. The final product is a piece of fine silver, or 99.9% silver. (PMC also contains a high percentage of reclaimed and recycled silver!)

Each piece is then cleaned and tumbled before being burnished by hand to highlight individual detail. Finally it is polished to give a high quality finish.

Each piece of jewellery is completely unique, no two pieces will ever be the same. Rock Troll fine silver is hand crafted by me in my studio in the wilds of Dorset.

Every silver pendant comes with a choice of a 925 sterling silver plated or black waxed cotton necklace.


**My Poppets and clay sculptures are made from CPC It is non-toxic and the main ingredients are paper pulp and a specially processed volcanic ash that makes it unique to sculpt and provides for a lightweight, durable finished product.

My Poppets and clay sculptures are not designed for outdoor use as the holes will allow water in which may expand when frozen.

The wooden boxes for my poppets are made from recycled wood where possible and the insert is real sheep's wool.

​Pins are rusted using a secret non-toxic process.

I try to use recycled or partially recycled packaging for posting items as far as possible.

If you have any questions at all about my jewellery or Poppets please don’t hesitate to contact me.
