The ocean appears like liquid silver when the sunshine hits its moving surface.
I love being able to use tools within the silversmithing techniques to capture the texture and reflection within the silver’s surface to make it sparkle and bring it alive.
My own Hallmark is registered with the Sheffield Assay Office and is my customers guarantee of the authenticity of my silver jewellery.

The only items which are exempt are those which are under the legal weight threshold:
- 0.5 grams for Platinum

Eco-recycled sterling silver
I use eco-recycled sterling silver (925) and fine silver (999) within my designs wherever possible
I also recycle my own silver within my seashell and jewellery designs
