I design and handcraft all my sterling silver jewellery. The pieces are either one offs or batch produced in small numbers. I use pattern and texture, most of which is created by hand stamping. I use handmade or antique / salvaged hand stamps, which means that the prints are quite unique to my work. I also use a unique combination of materials such as vintage plastics and vintage glass to add colour which I source from as far afield as America, Israel and Czechoslovakia. I use Victorian boot buttons (used in pendants and bangles) found in a small shop on the Isles of Scilly. I use vintage, leather stamping tools which I found and use to stamp into the silver. All work is sent in a beautiful presentation box.
Watch out for the October edition of Country Living magazine. My sterling silver and Bakelite Seed Head brooch pins can be found on page 14 of the Emporium section of the magazine that highlights new ways to introduce elements of country style into your home. Great to see my work in this lovely publication. Fingers crossed Santa puts them on a few of his lists this year!
