Time to down tools for Christmas - looking forward to some festive downtime before starting some new projects in January. Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas.
The last couple of months have flown past and I've just been finishing off last commissions in time for Christmas. This ring is set with a lovely subtle turqouise, a textured silver and gold pendant and earring set and a sparkling hammered oval silver bangle.
You can see why opals are one of the birthstones for October - they really reflect the range of colours seen around us at the moment. These are some recent rings and a pendant I have made in silver and gold with opal gemstones., I love the range of colours from sublte milky white opal to fire opal.
Another special commission can now be revealed. This time it was a present for a bride-to-be and the brief was based on the olive branch as a symbol of peace. This was apt as the couple are Greek and an olive branch design is often traditionally worn. The pendant is silver and rose gold. I'm delighted to hear that it was well received and wish the couple a long and happy future ahead.
It was a real pleasure to make this very special and personalised birthday present for a very lucky man. An 18ct gold cuff bracelet with engraved message on the inside.
Many thanks to those new and familiar faces who visited our Cambridge Open Studios this year. It was very busy and following on I have had a nice range of commissions to keep me busy! Here are a flavour - silver necklaces, gold and silver ring, gold earrings and silver bracelets and bangles
I am looking forward to exhibiting again with artist Sarah Blake this coming weekend and also 15th/16th July. If you're in Cambridge do visit! Here's a taste of work on show ...
Cambridge Open Studios - jewellery and art
Last year I went to an exhibition celebrating 150 years of the birth of Georg Jensen in Denmark. There was an extensive collection of silverware and jewellery made by him and his contempories. It was a very inspiring exhibition and I'm now working on a new collection of jewellery with some wonderful blue moonstones, a gemstone he used used in many pieces of his jewellery.
A varied month of making; some personal pieces including remodelling 9ct rose gold into a pendant and an engraved silver heart pendant.

Some of my favourite techniques are in these pieces of jewellery in the image; hammering, fusing and forging to create various textures to the silver.
