This is me in my workshop where I'm at my most comfortable, working away on new pieces.  More often than not, my designs are control by the button and how it wants to be showcased.  My designs come about very organically and what I had in mind for a particular button is not necessarily the end result.

 

 

All the pieces of wearable history are designed and hand crafted by my own hands.  I use only traditional Goldsmith techniques to ensure you are owning a quality, well made authentic treasure.

 

 

As you can see, each one of my bracelets have hand crafted links that are all individually soldered closed.   This add strength to the bracelet as well as quality.



                                             

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sometimes when the weather is just too good to be inside my studio, I will set up my computer outside in the sunshine to catch up on social media, website updates, newsletter content and new creation photos.

 

 

 

 

Here are two more French antique button charms in the making.

Transforming the 1790's out building, that once served as the bread making oven for the commune, into my perfect jewellery studio, really is a labour of love.
