A very warm welcome to my website which I hope will give you a taste of the jewellery which I design and create in my workshop in part of a converted barn on my West Cornwall smallholding.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

The outbreak of COVID 19 has obviously had a huge and serious impact on peoples lives in general and I do hope that you and your loved ones are managing to navigate this crisis safely. 

The pandemic has also had an impact on my business - initially during the first lockdown when tourism here in Cornwall was completely wiped out, galleries shut and craft fairs cancelled and then subsequently, whilst there was a brief respite during the summer months of 2020 as tourists flocked to the county and galleries reopened, none of my normal fairs were able to take place. 2021 was also a strange year going from 0 to 100% as lockdown restrictions eased and many people flooded to Cornwall for the summer. Galleries re-opened but fairs were slow to get going. Major ones in April and then in the summer were cancelled at the last minute. It was so lovely, therefore, to see many of my customers during the Christmas fairs that actually went ahead at the end of 2021. Currently things are still uncertain in respect of new COVID variants but I am hoping that life will soon continue to return to some sort of normality. 



As things progress and I am able to finalise other plans for the balance of the year I will once again list them below under EVENTS. 

If you navigate to the Gallery section of this website you'll see that I aim to showcase some of the items of silver jewellery which form the majority of my collection. As every item is unique and I am constantly redeveloping and tweaking my designs, there are always more examples than those I am able to post on this site. It is always worth contacting me direct, therefore, if there are other pieces you may have seen but which are not listed here.

The tactile as well as visual aspects of each piece of jewellery is important in all my designs where simple line and form combine with strong textures and highlights to produce items that are both striking and easy to wear.

The patterns and shapes of natural forms also have a strong influence on my work and I will often use particular animals and plants as inspiration especially for my etched items - peacocks, butterflies, sunflowers, trees, flowers & leaves to name but a few. Other obvious subjects for my work are inspired by the coastal and unique industrial landscape of Cornwall. 
 
 
 

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

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 currently raise  sheep. I am always happy to consider specific commissions where I am able to design and create a personal and individual item.

2022 EVENTS 

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. I am hopeful that 2022 will see craft fairs resume to pre-pandemic levels and I will then post details of any I am booked into closer to the time.

I also 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.   


    
          

 
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 or you are unable to make any of the above times, please contact me direct. 


       GALLERIES

To see and purchase pieces of my jewellery at other times visit The Four Crows right on the harbour front in Porthleven, The Roundhouse Gallery at Sennen Cove near Land's End or, new from October 2021, the Falmouth Art Gallery Shop on The Moor, Falmouth. Unfortunately, The Lane Gallery in Truro is no more but the gallery collective are organising pop-up exhibitions locally whenever possible which I will list on this page.
