A Short Ode To A Skeleton

I’m sad to say goodbye to my Skellington necklace. He’s one of my favourite things I’ve ever made. Happily though, he is currently at Itch Gallery (in Oakham, Rutland) enthusiastically waiting for someone to adopt him. Bye, Skellington. I hope you find a lovely new home.

Looking After The World’s Turtles

It’s World Turtle Day today, the 23rd of May (I love to rhyme), and in honour of these magnificent creatures that are so very endangered, SweetSilver is launching a little campaign.

The Epic Bicycle Commission

Over the last year, many friends and strangers who showed an interest in my work heard about my bicycle commission. I’ve been working on it for a while… A lovely couple of cyclists requested a bespoke commission for a pair of earrings and a necklace in silver with highlights of gold. Here’s the story in…
