My love of art and all things crafting began at a very early age and over the years I have tried many different crafts. It was when I completed a course in Silvercraft a few years ago making a silver amethyst ring for my daughter that I became addicted to the creation of jewellery and all that sparkles and glitters.
I have since made many pieces using fused glass and silver clay including fingerprint jewellery but genuine precious and semi-precious gemstones are my addiction. I love the look and feel when working with them, especially when setting them with precious metals.
In my pieces you will find that I have used genuine gemstones and freshwater pearls unless otherwise stated. I love to work with sterling silver and this is sometimes plated with rose or yellow gold. Many of my designs are created using silver plated copper, brass or other base metals and wire depending on the final look that I am trying to achieve.
As I use genuine precious and semi-precious gemstones in my work, there may be a slight variance in colours on the gemstones and they may show inclusions which I believe only adds to the beauty of the pieces.
I hope you will enjoy wearing my creations as much as I love making them.
My other passion is abstract painting with mixed media and Resins. I find that both gemstones and resin can also be used together which is a another area that I enjoy working in.
