I have been a professional Silver and Goldsmith for over 17 years. I am a designer/maker creating individual and unique jewellery including my fingerprint etched wedding rings.
I combine traditional silversmithing skills and tecniques with simple modern design, hand crafting each piece . I work with copper, brass, bronze, silver, gold and platinum. I also enjoy working with wood, plastics and recycled materials. I have even made a pair of wooden wedding rings !!
I live with my family and 2 dogs on the Somerset levels which never fail to inspire me.
I have run a make your own wedding ring course for couples for the last 10 years. I also run day courses for adult learners in silversmithing and upcycled jewellery making from "For Every Cloud" Gallery and craft centre in Langport, Somerset and The Lilac Barn in Stoke St Gregory, Somerset.
I have a positive approach to life and teaching, I aim to help you access your creativity and develop your ideas in to functional jewellery pieces . Learn new skills to take away and continue your jewellery making independently.
I prefer to lead by example as the tuition will mainly be practical. The classes can be designed around making a specific piece - ie a ring or necklace or learning the different process ie soldering, stone setting etching etc… We will be exploring traditional hand skills and some design work.
As well as the traditional jewellery making i also offer jewellery making classes using recycled materials, this
class takes a looser approach to jewellery making creating fun inovative peices out of unusual materials.
