Firstly, thank you for your interest and finding my web shop! I specialise in designing contemporary and tactile designs which are a pleasure to wear. My aim is to update my shop frequently with new designs, so add me to your favourites and keep checking my shop.
A bit about me....I worked as a business analyst for many years for a well known software company and although I have always been interested in art and design, once I discovered silversmithing I was totally smitten and decided a change in career was needed. My passion for silver started when I accompanied a good friend to my first silversmithing course 'make a ring in a day'. What started out as an interest soon developed into a full-blown passion and Delia and Janet from The Jewellery Maker, Lancaster supplied endless tuiton, patience and encouragement.
I am a gold member of The Guild of Jewellery Designers. All my jewellery weighing over 7.78 grams is hallmarked by the London Assay office and also includes my sponsors mark. I'm also a member of Manchester Jewellers Network (MJN) which is a collective of jewellers based in the north-west of England. We frequently exhibit at Manchester Art Gallery and The Royal Exchange and share ideas and practices.
Your silver is designed and handmade in my studio in a beautiful rural area near Kirkby Lonsdale and the Lake District. I'm lucky to also spend a lot of time in the French Alps and these locations provide me with endless inspiration. In fact I always have far more ideas than time to put them into practice! Many of my pieces are made for commissions or as prototypes. If you see a design you would like ‘tweaking' or realising in gold, please contact me for prices.
All pieces are handmade by me and arrive in a presentation box with a signed tag. Items can be sent as presents and a suitable card enclosed with words chosen by you. I don't always have every item in stock, but if your request is urgent please let me know and I shall do my best! Heavier items are sent for hallmarking which takes a couple of days.
I hope you find what you are searching for - but if not, do give me a call or send an email and together we could design something unique.
