Here are some of the projects that I have done. This ring is the first thing that I made, Sterling Silver with a rose cut Citrine. If you are interested in having any jewellery made or repaired, please contact me.
Two types of cufflinks, the first the base section was brought ready made. It will take me a bit more practice to make my own, but the top base, bezel and stone setting have been made by me. The stones on the first are Sodalite and on the second are Rainbow Moonstone. The second set of cufflinks, chain link, are fully made by me.
This is a Sterling Silver bar necklace, the chain cut to length and attached to the hand made bar. The gem stones are Lapis Lazuli, Aquamarine and a Mother of Pearl teardrop in the middle. It is finished off with a hand made "S" clasp.
Snowflake Obsidian ring.
Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic glass, formed when lava cools rapidly. Snowflake Obsidian has tiny mineral inclusions that form a snowflake-like patterns in the stone. It is said to purify, growing body, soul, aura and represents the balancing of dark and light.
The ring has a pattern inpressed into it using a roller mill. This was done by using a dry leaf of Common Yarrow that I collected the other day. When I looked up the meaning of common yarrow, after I had put the silver and leaf through the mill. Its meaning is healing and love.
Red Jasper Ring
Red Jasper is an opaque version of quartz with a vitreous luster and an opaque transparency. It is known as the stone of endurance and balances stamina, courage, strength.
The ring band has the pattern of the Common Yarrow leaf on it. This was made for a customer.
Tree of Life
I thought I would give this a try, to see how it would turn out. It is made with Sterling Silver and glass beads. I do not think it turned out too bad.
Blue and white pottery earrings
I picked up these pieces of potter when I was out walking the fields.
First attempt, not fully happy with them, will try harder. The twisted silver wire was made by me as was the settings.
This is Silver wire weaving, I planned to make a ring or two with it.
And here is the ring I made, not bad for a first attempt.
I love the design of ancient Roman, Anglo-Saxon, Celtic and Viking jewellery. Especially enamelled pieces, so I decided to have a go myself. This is the first attempt, I left it at this stage in the firing before it went to the glossy stage. I like the texture, can't wait to try some more. I would love to reproduce some Roman enamel brooches.
