Wrapped in Silver is about natural raw jewellery, finding beauty in things that have depth and perhaps flaws and chips, and with a story to tell or character to reveal.
No two pieces are the same and all are made-to-order.
About five years ago I discovered silver metal clay, a Japanese material that contains millions of tiny fine silver particles which, when fired with a torch or in a kiln, transforms into 99.9% fine solid silver. It's both alchemy and a magical experience!
As a result of intensive training courses and graduating with Levels 1 and 2 Art Silver Clay Diploma, I now design and make fine silver jewellery and teach workshops.
I enjoy teaching workshops in this amazing medium and sharing an exciting, fun, creative and mindful experience. And you get to leave wearing your own fine silver jewellery!
Each piece of jewellery is designed with the characteristic of the crystal. Working with silver metal clay, each one is individually sculpted into a bold fine silver ring or pendant. All silver is 99.9% fine precious silver, hallmark quality. You can choose a crystal or a colour you love and your piece/s will be sized, designed and made-to-order.
What a shame when a beautiful ceramic object gets broken and is no longer functional. Embracing the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi and the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent or incomplete, I construct the broken pieces into new shapes and wrap them in fine silver to transform them into wearable jewellery.
Silver clay has such wonderful qualities so that stunning pieces can be made by celebrating natural silver with embellishments if preferred. Pure and simple.
