Hello… it’s true, ever since I can remember I’ve had a love of nature.
As a child, I filled my pockets with shells and pebbles from the beach, as well as going blackberry picking with my grandparents. The memories of wearing a string of different shaped and coloured shells, or threading daisies together to make a pretty daisy chain to wear, are as clear today as they were then.
Inspired by the beautiful shapes of shells, botanicals, grasses, seeds, and fossils, I began to design and create sterling silver jewellery, using the wonders of the world around me as my source book.
The aim was to preserve the essence of the organic shapes and textures in a precious metal. I’m a silver caster and I also use other techniques to recreate these natural pieces.
Since launching in 2019, I’ve challenged myself to find new ways to reconnect with nature and the beautiful Cotswold landscape that I live in. I’ve foraged for daisies, leaves, collected pieces of fallen bark and made silver rings and delicate daisy pendants using natural textures. You can see more techniques, how to’s and my nature diary by visiting my blog, Behind the Scenes.
I design and create my pieces using real shells, leaves, fossils and seedpods to make beautiful, handmade jewellery. And, my passion for nature doesn’t stop there. As a new brand, I am highly sensitive to our impact on the planet so sustainability and responsible sourcing is at the heart of everything that I do. I use recycled sterling silver and all my packaging is eco-friendly.
