My Cherry Pie - necklace3

“I produce a collection of colourful and textured jewellery using techniques such as kiln fired enamel, copper, etching, repousse, stone setting and metal patinas.

I have a BH(Hons) woven textile degree from the Scottish College of Textiles but have developed my silversmithing and jewellery designs over the last 10 years whilst bringing up my family. I enjoy working with semi precious gemstones and Czech glass beads to compliment the copper and sterling silver.

I make rings, earrings, bangles, pendants, and welcome commissions.

I am also working on a new collection of ring and trinket dishes using enamel and ceramic transfers.”
