Me working 1    I believe the jewellery you wear should make your heart sing. It should make you walk a little taller. It should set you apart from the crowd and allow you to express who you really are.

Every semi-precious stone I work with is chosen for its beauty and its folklore, helping me to create highly individual pieces which are rich in symbolism and which tell their own stories. Every piece of sea glass I gather by hand has spent decades in the ocean, being smoothed and shaped and frosted by the tides.

I wrap these treasures only in solid sterling silver or 14k goldfill wire, so everything about each piece is completely natural and organic. While I may start out with an idea of how a piece should look, it has usually changed by the time it’s finished – such is the joy of working with wire. It is a passion, and my heart and soul is poured into every piece.

All semi-precious stones, sea shells and nuggets of sea glass are linked in some way with the elements of air, fire, water and earth.

The fifth element is you.

The crystal was part of a gift for my sister, and she asked if I could have it made into a necklace so she could feel the benefit of the qualities of the crystal. I immediately thought of Lorraine and she was incredibly kind and came to my house to talk through ideas for the necklace. The finished pendant was more beautiful than I could have imagined! I cannot recommend Lorraine enough, as you will be in the most caring and talented hands!
