Home

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.



After what seems to have already been a busy year, it is now fast approaching Christmas again and I have a lot more fairs lined up for November and into December 2019. These are listed 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. 

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 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.

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. 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.

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. 

Alternatively, following the re-launch of The Lane Gallery in Truro - a co-operative of 18 local craftspeople - you will find me taking my turn curating the gallery at least twice a month. If it is easier to meet me in Truro then contact me to ask when I will next be there.

                                        GALLERIES

To see and purchase pieces of my jewellery at other times, visit the beautiful Blue Bramble Gallery in Island Square, St Ives, the renowned Roundhouse and Capstan Gallery in Sennen Cove or the fabulous The Four Crows right on the harbour front in Porthleven. In addition there is a good selection of my work in the newly renovated and re opened Out of the Blue Gallery in Marazion and of course there is once again a large display of my work at The Lane Gallery in Truro.
