Silver, copper and enamelled jewellery and small metalwork, using reclaimed and recycled metal
I work in copper, silver and enamel and use recycled or reclaimed metal, wherever possible. My work is frequently nostalgic, taking inspiration from book illustrations, maps, vintage ceramics and fabrics. I like to combine traditional metal working & enamelling techniques with collage and digital design tools. I sell my work online via my Folksy store, through selected shops and galleries as well as at events and markets throughout the year.
I also run small-group workshops in enamelling and jewellery making, although these are currently on hold until it is safe to do them again. Students at the workshops enjoy the creative atmosphere, the opportunity to use a range of metal working tools and the chance to learn a new skill or just try something different. I love seeing the range of things that students make as well as the ideas and creativity that they bring to the workshops. The small group sessions ensure that everyone gets the attention they deserve and everyone goes home with one or more completed items of jewellery.
Please note, all workshops are currently on hold due to Coronavirus restrictions. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss private tuition or to arrange a workshop at your venue, subject to restrictions in place at the time.
You can also buy from me in person at fairs and events throughout the year. Keep an eye on my Facebook page for the latest information about events that I will be attending, including:
