Inspired by the natural world, Joy creates a range of silver and gold jewellery and miniature pictures. Favourite techniques include a range of textures using acid etching, reticulation, hammered finishes, casting and chain designs.
Working primarily in sterling silver (and some fine), pieces are often enhanced by the
addition of 9ct rose gold.
A range of standard pieces are available to purchase (see gallery), these include
bangles, earrings, pendants, bracelets and rings. Commissions are undertaken by
request. All commission work is hallmarked by Birmingham Assay Office.
Set in the beautiful Mid-Wales countryside, Joy, a teacher with many years’ experience,
is able to offer individual tuition or workshops for up to 4 students in her fully equipped
studio. Although she enjoys teaching adults, over the last 9 years she has taught
silversmithing to 9-11 year olds, with amazing results! Some of these can be found in
