Elegant, timeless handmade jewellery. Pearls and semi-precious stones are central to my work often with handmade silver elements. Restringing welcome.

I trained at The Sir John Cass School of Art and Design in London, learning both Silversmithing & Jewellery. This was a great opportunity for me to explore my passion for jewellery and historic jewels.

Working with a wide variety of materials, including pearls often combined with semi-precious stones and unusual minerals. Each piece is unique. Using hand made Sterling silver beads or focal elements and unusual clasps to create a contemporary but classic look. Jewellery is an everyday luxury, discrete but noticeable, that should make you feel special.

Clients are welcomed to come and choose their own strand of pearls and clasp. The length, size of pearl and style are all important factors that can be decided together before work begins on your bespoke piece.

Remodelling older pieces and heirlooms is very satisfying, breathing new life into, and making them wearable again. A piece need not be valuable, sentimental items bring joy.  Often restringing is all that is needed, but sometimes shortening and a new clasp makes the difference between lying unused and unloved in a drawer and being worn & cherished again.
