A new look for silver Flow rings

Organically shaped, handmade silver Flow rings in brushed silver

As I'm sure you know, the Flow pieces - rings first, then pendants and earrings - emerged during the past difficult winter. As a maker and designer, so much of what I create comes from how I'm feeling, and these pieces certainly mirrored what I felt during those long, dark winter days of 2020. The subtle, almost imperceptibly pale gold solder on the irregular curves felt like just the right touch - just the right amount of optimism to...

My new, custom-made, naturally hand-dyed ribbon

How to commission a piece of jewellery

One of the perks of buying from an independent designer is the ability to enter into discussions with your jeweller about your own preferences, your ideas, your likes and dislikes, and it brings such joy to both the craftsperson and the client when we can make your piece absolutely personal to you.

The techniques and processes I use ensure that every piece of jewellery I make is unique in its own way. But sometimes you might want something absolutely one-of-a-kind, and in these cases, I can either adapt a current design to your preferences, or create something entirely new.
