Handmade jewellery, inspired by nature.
I’m a jeweller from Buxton in the Peak District, Derbyshire. I studied jewellery and silversmithing at college in Sheffield over 18 years ago and now run my own jewellery business where I design and make everything from my own workshop.
I work mainly in silver and natural gemstones. I specialise in traditional hand engraving. My inspiration comes from the natural world as UK flora and fauna fascinate me. In 2022 I became a Fellow Member of the Society of Botanical Artists.
Bespoke Jewellery (3)
I offer a bespoke jewellery service where I pair your vision with my craft skills to create your perfect piece of jewellery.
This could be anything from a christening gift to a wedding ring, a bridesmaids brooch to a hinged keepsake locket. I work in silver or gold and can incorporate gemstones, such as a person's birthstone, or simply a stone of their favourite colour.
I can collaborate with you as closely or remotely as you wish, some customers prefer to meet in person initially to discuss their requirements, while others are happy to interact throughout via email.
You may have strong idea of what you want and how the finished piece should look, or you may have a theme you would like followed but are happy to leave the designing to me, I can accomodate both styles and I will run potential designs past you for approval before starting to make the item.
I advise that you allow up to three months from start to finish for a bespoke project, this allows me to spend the appropriate time on planning as well as making, finishing and hallmarking the item. However it is understandable that sometimes an idea for a special keepsake jewellery item only presents itself nearer to the event, and I will always try to accommodate in such circumstances.
Use the contact form on my homepage to enquire and I’ll be happy to discuss your project with you.
The Bird Collection (3)
The bird collection consists of my own handmade designs of UK bird species.
They feature traditional hand engraving to decorate the silver, making the detail as life-like as possible.
The Butterfly Collection (4)
The Butterfly collection consists of my own designs handmade and engraved by hand from sterling and argentium silver.
The Celtic Birth Tree Collection (5)
The Celtic birth tree collection is inspired by the tree astrology developed by the ancient Celts.
The Celts valued nature and their surroundings highly.
Based on their lunar calendar, which has thirteen astrological signs rather than twelve, the Celts designated a tree to each of the thirteen moon phases and associated each tree with a type of personality.
So my collection features thirteen different plants which I have used on silver cuffs.
They all feature my traditional hand engraving techniques to decorate the silver.
