Preparing for Christmas Open Studios


It’s that time of year again when I am busy making up stock and sorting out samples in the count down to the Christmas Open Studios at Cockpits. With my long list to hand I am busy generally doing the thing I love most, working with beautiful gems and jewels I have been keeping hold of.

Here is my messy workbench with my treasured, amazingly crafted, stone carving given to me as a gift for my RCA graduation from my uncle Alan Ward.  You can contact him for commissions on

Porcelain flowers freshly fired in the kiln ready to make into earrings. 

These are before and after shots of how I make the gold granules that are on my rings - recycling off cuts and melting on charcoal - very satisfying!

I thought this looked quite festive, like a snowflake (but made of acid).  It was created by my broken slow cooker that I use to pickle the metal.
