Welcome to my website which I hope will give you a taste of the jewellery I design and create from my West Cornwall smallholding.

After a few weeks out of my workshop to enjoy Christmas and welcome in 2019, I am busy again building up stock for the spring and summer. Alongside favourite pieces, this is the time of year that I love to experiment and develop new designs some more successful than others... See below to find out where you might be able to come across them, listed under EVENTS.

The Gallery section of this website aims to showcase some of the items of silver jewellery which form the majority of my designs. The tactile as well as visual aspects of each piece are important in all my designs where simple line and form combine with strong textures and highlights to produce jewellery that is both striking and easy to wear.

The patterns and shapes of natural forms have a strong influence on my work and I will often also use particular animals and plants as inspiration especially for my etched items - peacocks, butterflies, sunflowers, oak trees & leaves to name but a few. 

  My on-going collection includes chunky organic and highly-tactile rings, earrings and bangles, hammered and riveted cuffs, pendants, delicate flower pin brooches and more quirky and unique acid-etched & oxidised items.

In October 2018 my husband and I managed, after a busy year with lambs, puppies and another wedding, to take two weeks away from Cornwall to walk the Portuguese Camino to Santiago de Compostela in NorthWest Spain. For those who have themselves walked some of the various 'ways' you will know that directions are marked by yellow arrows or tiles of beautiful yellow scallop shells (the emblem of St James) on a blue background. To mark the occasion I made my own shell earrings using a blue Lapis bead which I wore everyday. I enjoy designing and making unique items to mark either a specific interest or occasion. There are further examples in the commission section of this website.




I work mainly in silver but often complement my designs with rose or yellow 9ct gold. Items are sent to the Birmingham Assay Office for hallmarking. 








All jewellery is hand-made in my barn-studio set within a working smallholding where my husband and I raise pigs and sheep. I am always happy to consider specific commissions where I am able to design and create a personal and individual item.

EVENTS IN 2019

You will find a selection of my jewellery all year round in the galleries listed at the bottom of this page but I also attend several craft and design fairs and exhibitions throughout the year and aim to keep this website up to date with the latest information. In addition, I mail out detailed information on all my projected events twice a year to a database of previous clients and interested persons! If you would like to be included on my mailing list or would like more information on a specific event please contact me and leave me your details - full name and address or email is fine.


My first event of the year will be on Lemon Quay in Truro for a new Made in Cornwall Easter event. More details are not yet available but the fair runs from April 17th to 20th and I will have a stall for all four days.

I have not signed up for the county-wide Open Studios event over Whitsun for 2019. My first grandchild is expected to arrive just a couple of weeks beforehand and I anticipate being in London to help out! Most of the many visitors who visit me are previous customers so if you want to come along at any time you are always very welcome to contact me independently.



              

I will continue to update this website with my whereabouts as details of events are confirmed but in the meantime if you  would prefer to arrange a different time to come along to my workshop to discuss any specific requirement and if you are unable to make any of the above times, please contact me direct.
