About

Sculptress, Silversmith, Eco-Silver jewellery Moons textured with Cornish beach stone

MJHS Contemporary is unique designer jewellery & gifts.
Using Eco-Silver & taking inspiration from nature.
The moon & her relationship with ourselves & planet earths oceans have inspired a popular body of work that is available in store & keeps evolving
Metals are hand cut & textured with Cornish beach stones..
I like to keep my work to small hand crafted runs each with their own uniqueness.


Trained sculptress, chef, sole parent, and tsunami survivor. The event s of the 2004 AsianTsunami changed my life. I decided to home educate/world educate my daughter and try to live each day to the full as I know we are privileged to be alive. We try to spend as much time as possible in skill exchange with her grandma when we see her, in baking and knitting, decoupage and garden skills. We were extremely fortunate to survive this natural disaster together.
Etsy has given me a platform for me to sell my work without having to commit to too many markets. (A great opportunity a s a sole parent.)
Super excited to be designing with my daughter as we try to be in the place Picasso strived to make work from in later life. The un-schooled childlike drawings and way of seeing.




A bit about commissions and heritage & heirloom works....
I love making work to incorporate customers collected ephemera or really treasured family pieces of cloth, pictures/ drawings broken artefacts. Working with customers during the design and making process is a real joy and, lots of fun. I always aim for all parties to gain skills / have creative time during these processes. Through design time, tutoring and implementation of traditional and new making techniques, we can all learn something new and exciting.

My experience of exhibitions in conventional and unconventional spaces, community work, and daily sketching in the Cornish landscape has produced my vibrant portfolio. It showcases a rich pallet of pattern, materials and methods within my work.
