Silver outshines

It seems the world of jewellery has set its sights on silver as the metal of choice. I believe there’s more to it than just the current price of gold.  With designers like myself using this white metal to create jewellery designs that are bold, brave and even brazen, we’re giving it a whole new form and expression.

For me, I love the freedom of designing and hand-making pieces like a heavy cuff bangle or a large necklace without being constrained by the cost of the metal involved. Silver gives me that freedom.

I’m working on a few new pieces at the moment where the volume is so important for the right look, so I end up using a lot of metal and it’s fantastic!

Watch out for these pieces coming soon!
