About

Made in the Midlands

From my workshop in Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter, I create delicate, unusual designs for people who want eye-catching jewellery that doesn’t break the bank or their workplace dress code…

As a historian working out of the Jewellery Quarter, I take much of my inspiration from historic architecture and design, but also from found objects and 21st century minimalism. I'm always focusing on the possibilities of shape and texture within delicate jewellery pieces; I wants to prove that designs don’t have to be large to be statement pieces! Each item created is a reflection of both past and present; a vintage button could inspire a modern necklace, whilst new techniques with precious metal clay might prompt the creation of a replica Tudor coin charm. From weddings to workwear and simple to statement, there's a design in our collection to suit everyone.

At Tiding of Magpies, we believe that jewellery is an important means of self-expression, so want to create staple pieces that make people feel even more like themselves every time they wear them. This is why I love nothing more than having the chance to create custom designs for my clients. If you have an idea for a piece, why not drop me a conversation, and we'll get started making your perfect, bespoke design.

And as for the name of my store? Well, although recent research suggests magpies may not be as fond of collecting shiny objects as we all thought, there’s no doubt that we humans are, and that’s where Tiding of Magpies comes in...
