Latest jewellery.

19 October, 2014 – 12:49 pm

I started making jewellery about 5 yrs ago but using bought stones and silver plated wire, I tinkered with silver wire and finally 2yrs ago taught myself to silver solder, in that time I have been tumbling more and I have become more creative finally making earrings and using only stones that I make. This latest selection is the culmination of several months preparing and designing. Obviously having a larger workshop has helped enormously as I have several work areas set up depending on what I need to do next.

The pendants are hung on leather thongs with silver plated findings but if you want I can make them with sterling silver findings but this will alter the cost.

I can make earrings with clip on fixings if you don’t have your earring pierced -these are tried and tested by a customer so I am happy that they are suitable for the task.

Commissions and stone carvings for sale

16 October, 2014 – 9:30 pm

Well I have been busy working on many different types of stone carving from the smallest carved initial to a portrait of a loved pet.

I have plenty of house names and numbers that I am working on as well as new carvings, pendants and earrings which are available for sale in my shop. (photos to follow)

I know that it is still only early Autumn but as you may be aware I design, hand carve and hand finish everything that I sell and as such I have to start working on my Christmas range now.

If you wish to commission something for yourself or a loved one specifically for Christmas please place your order as soon as possible to ensure that I can make them in time.

If you wish to place a non-seasonal commission I am booking in for January now.

Thank you,

Hope to see you soon.

What have I been working on lately?

26 August, 2014 – 2:43 pm

I have had a busy few months, here are some of the projects that I have been working on for both commissions and my shop.

I have just finished carving some Bath stone pillar candle holders and as soon as I have a gap I plan to carve a pair of cube pillar candle holders with Celtic knotwork on the four faces!

There are many new carvings in the pipeline not only as commissions but also for my shop so watch this space!
