Handcrafted jewellery pieces using traditional silversmithing techniques incorporating semi-precious gemstones.
Gemstones have a long and fascinating history. With an array of beautiful colours and their connection with the Earth, Gemstones are also thought to possess distinct energies, bringing with them their own unique and individual meanings and have been used for centuries to aid with Physical, Spiritual and Emotional wellbeing.
They say that it is the Gemstone that pulls you; so maybe the piece is reflecting aspects of your character or it may have the energies that you are looking for in a certain moment of your life. Sometimes they will stay with you for life, or it is said they will leave you in some way when you move onto the next chapter. Whether you believe this or not, Gemstones are truly beautiful just as they are.
Having first entered the world of Silversmithing over ten years ago I then went on to do an apprenticeship with a renowned Jeweller and Silversmith in Oxford, not realising where this journey would take me. I simply loved creating and working with metal and was inspired by what could be created, using a few simple tools, a pair of hands and some heat. Working in mainly Sterling Silver using Traditional and Cuttlefish Bone Casting Techniques, the pieces often incorporate Semi-Precious Gemstones or other materials that are found around us - such as a piece of Slate, Pebble or Sea Glass. These are often used as the focal point and whereby the story starts as the piece begins to evolve and what it may mean to you, as the wearer.
The pieces often take an organic appearance, which do not come highly polished or are mass produced. They are individually handcrafted, offsetting the rawness of nature with the beauty and energies from the Gemstones.
Whichever piece you choose, in whichever style you want, it is an honor and privilege for me to be able to work with you to find a piece that tells a part of your story.
