Although the ceramics will always be my first love it is a nice change to make other things from time to time – especially in the winter when things are quiet in the gallery.
I’ve always loved jewellery and have decided to create a new range called St Just Artisan Jewellery which has its own Facebook page and page on the website and includes my sterling silver handmade necklaces, rings, earrings and pendants, a range of copper hand painted earrings, my gemstone and crystal necklaces, rings, earrings and pendants and the hand cast pure tin necklaces, pendants and rings.
It is a broad range featuring also some enamel work and I intend to add to it regularly over time. I’ve recently started to use pyrite for pendants, rings and earrings and love the look of this material. Contemporary yet timeless.
People have commented it is unusual and quite eccentric – but I am going to take that as a compliment.
Or maybe just pop into The Jane Adams Gallery in St Just and have a look at the real thing?
