SILVER & COPPER

I love to make jewellery. I went on a Silversmith course from 2014-2015 to compliment my knowledge in other medias. Please go to the link to my Etsy shop from the home page if anything takes your fancy. If it’s not there, just email me and ask as I am happy to help!

WIREWORK

My Mum also taught me to crochet. The jewellery made from wire was a direct result of working towards the wire waistcoats. I plan to make a waistcoat for each season.

Accessories on the theme of the three completed waistcoats can be found in my Etsy shop link on the home page.

Swifts can be seen darting in and out of the old shed at the end of the track.
