Jewels from the Lake..

My recent summers spent in the Lake District have inspired a whole new range of jewellery, I became obsessed with slate walls, I have so many photographs of them, I imagine the slates made from silver, the odd gold one, stones peeping out from between, secret doors.. gold leaves growing around, layer upon layer.. Sparkling lakes, gold, grey, blue, mauve, green.... inky blue... going to smoky black. I have a sketch book full of designs, these earrings are the first to be realised ... I only hope I have time to create the rest..

Hello 2016!!

Well hello 2016, you came around pretty fast, you can slow down now..... Hope you all have a healthy, happy and creative one!! Come along to my studio in the Upper Storehouse Corbridge and make jewellery to banish those cold dark winter days! My new 2016 Winter/Spring workshops schedule is now online, pop over to my Workshops page to view it or my website,
Due to the popularity of my half day taster class I am now running a new workshop, Simply Lovely Silver Stacking Rings, this is a longer workshop than my taster class to enable you to make a number of silver rings, different widths and textures, personalise, add embellishments, mix and match your own handmade rings!

Remember if two or more people would like to attend a workshop we can arrange a day to suit you and make what you want..! Just get in touch to book a place,
