About

Handcrafted sterling silver and copper jewellery, incorporating brass, pewter and semi-precious stones. Usually quirky and animal designs, I also have a new range of upcycled bronze pre-decimal coins.

I aim to create jewellery that people really enjoy wearing and that they will not see anywhere else. I'm often told that brooches aren't popular but I sell more of these than pendants - my customers tend to want original, quirky designs and aren't necessaily the latest trend/fashion followers - and neither am I.  It is unusual to find a jewellery designer in this country that specialises in the use of copper as their core material as I do - I have a passion for its colour, texture and versatility and use it throughout most of my ranges. Copper contrasts beautifully with the silver, bronze and brass in the earrings, brooches, necklaces and rings which I make in my home studio in Lancashire. 

Recycling pre-decimal coins (legal to do so as these are no longer in circulation, though I do have a license for those who have doubts about the legality) is a more recent addition to my portfolio. I use a fine jewellers saw to pierce each of the bronze penny and halfpenny coins, mostly with animal designs and make them into pendant and earrings.  I use the brass threepenny bits as bracelet charms on the semi-precious stone bracelets and farthings (when I have them) as cufflinks.

I work from a home studio, so my designs are available at craft fairs throughout the North West of England, various galleries nationally and online via my website, facebook, Folksy, etsy and by direct correspondence.
