Beautiful handcrafted jewellery – Yours to treasure forever Barbara x
After working in stainless and mild steel, I dived head first into further education where I went on a quest to find out what I wanted to do with the rest of my life, gain an understand of art and hone my skills. After studying for 3 years, I was taken in by another metal… Silver. I found this was much more manageable than 8 x 4 sheet steel, a 3 metre guillotine and Mig & Tig welders. I didn’t have to have an engineering workshop to create beautiful textured jewellery inspired by oceans, beaches and river banks. During my journey I was seduced by a pair of 1940’s Stockings – these are the inspiration for a silver collection – Stocking Tops and Lace.
You can now find me working at the Silver Bench in the Studio creating new and exciting pieces from the highest quality Silver Bullion, which is ALL recycled. Pop in and say hello or call or email to discuss your special occasion piece x
