Silver Birch trees/Blue Sky

Silver Birch

I love walking and spend a lot of time outdoors when I can.  There is something glorious about being in the middle of a woodland. and it was the dappled sunlight glinting on some silver birches which created the inspiration behind these pieces.

This pattern has been chosen by a couple of local brides as their wedding jewellery.

I hope that people enjoy wearing my creations as much as I enjoy making them.

Fistral Bay

In September 2018 I had a fabulous week staying near Fistral Bay, Newquay in Cornwall. 

The patterns of the waves and rocks were beautiful and the sun shone all week.  Many an evening was spent watching the sun go down with a glass of wine, enjoying seeing the surfers at Fistral Bay.

The coast is always my happy place but living in the middle of West Yorkshire I needed a piece of jewellery to remind me of the crashing of those waves and the feel of the sand in my toes.

Maybe the textures in these pieces will do the same for you.

Silver Fern

I have been lucky enough to visit New Zealand twice and on both occassions I  have been struck by the beauty of the landscapes. 

The Silver Fern seemed an iconic image so when I found a texture that replicated the swirls of the fronds I decided to try these pieces.  Now each time I wear my dangly earrings I am reminded of my adventures!

silver Landscapes collection coming Winter 2020

I have always been interested in physical geography so when I am out and about I often take photographs of landscapes and love how the different seasons and light can alter a sense of place.  As a primary school teacher I enjoyed teaching children how to create paper collages, texturing their paper with various paint and print techniques first. So when I discovered that silver clay could be rolled super thin I decided to try and incorporate all these ideas!  

Inspired by the bright silver light cast by the moon on a clear night in the fields by the house I started to create my own silver landscapes.
