Crafted from scratch

Silver, Fine Silver and Gold

I work in silver and gold and will use your own metal if you are looking to upcycle. Your old or unworn jewellery can be turned into something fresh and new.

Pieces can range from delicate to “substantial” and everywhere in-between. Textures, organic shapes, stones and natural materials can also be included.

If you feel inspired to have a piece crafted from your idea or want to browse the items in stock – pop in and say hello.
