Sliver Peruvian Lily Coin Frame

Sliver Peruvian Lily Coin Frame

This commission was so much fun! My customer was given this gold half sovereign by her grand father and it has been in a drawer ever since. She wanted it made into something she could wear and she said she loved my very flowery style. I love the fact that all flowers have a meaning associated with them and so I looked in my trusty "Flowerpaedia" by Cheralyn Darcey and found that the Peruvian Lily means, among other things, wealth and success. I loved this for this piece as it speaks to the original use and value of the coin....


Ruby, Emerald and Pearl Necklace

Ruby, Emerald and Pearl Necklace

In another post I discussed a ruby, emerald and pearl ring that I made. The same customers returned and asked for a matching necklace. I tried to incorporate the same sort of lines that were in the ring so that the necklace would match and I obviously used the same stones; ruby, emerald and pearls. I think it is such a beautiful piece and it will give her joy for many years. I love how you can get joy out of jewellery and I love to think that I am adding that little bit of joy into the world with the work...


Emerlad, Ruby and Pearl Ring

Emerlad, Ruby and Pearl Ring

This ring is so special. These customers came to me because they were very unhappy with a ring that was made by another jeweller. The ring they had had made was not what they wanted and so asked me to remake it and try to achieve their vision. Each stone represents an anniversary and the pearl is precious to them as they found a pearl in an oyster on their anniversary! Can you believe it! It was a bit tricky as the customer has bad arthritis and so the ring has to be able to open to get over her...


Gold and Diamond Ring

Gold and Diamond Ring

This customer came to me with an idea and a whole lot of rings! She wanted 5 rings melted down and all the diamonds incorporated into one large and decidedly modern ring. I of course was happy to oblige. After a bit of discussion about design we eventually came up with this. I love it and I love that now my customer can wear her new ring rather than have a whole bunch of rings sitting in a drawer. If you have old jewellery lying around and want something new, just send me an email and I'll make you the...


Turquoise Iris Pendant

Turquoise Iris Pendant

I am obsessed with the Art Nouveau style! I have loved the style since I studied it at university and so jumped at the chance to incorporate a small amount of the elegance and grace, that makes it so iconic, into a piece. This customer wanted a gift for his sister and really gave me free rein within the Art Nouveau bracket. I love the finished product. So if you are looking for a unique, one of a kind gift, why not get in touch and lets make it happen.
