Handcrafted Jewellery Inspired by the Sea and Beach

The designs are all original and individually hand crafted by me, using Sterling Silver, Copper, Brass, semi-precious stones, pearls, crystals, seaglass and beads. Because my jewellery pieces are one of a kind, I can adapt designs to your own requirements.

If you visit Sussex, I hope you have time to see my work. Recent pieces can be viewed (and bought), at the Shoreham Gallery, Brunswick Road, Shoreham-by-Sea and all my new work is included in the Gallery pages on this site.

I am always happy to accept commissions.

A lover of the beach, sea and downs here in Sussex, I spend as much of my time as possible walking and exploring the coast and hills or sailing from Shoreham. The sea is my passion and I think this is reflected in my jewellery and my silk painting. I think that the bright and vibrant colours of the silk dyes, reflect my love of colour too.

As a silk painter, (and jewellery maker), much of my work is based on the beauty of the coastline and on the mystery and legends of the sea. I originally trained as a graphic designer and have worked in the art and design world for over 25 years. I think that is why I am so attracted by colour and the graphic nature of silk painting.

Most of my jewellery designs can be altered, so If you don’t see exactly what you want, or would like a design changed in any way, please feel free to ask. All items can be constructed with alternative materials, in different sizes or you can select the colour of beads or stones you prefer and other components can be added or replaced. It makes the jewellery pieces special and just for you!
