A brushed, oxidised silver lichen pendant, set with a 3mm blue tourmaline, on an 18" omega chain. A firm favourite with our lovely customers.
Taking inspiration from the patterns created by lichen growth, texture is created by acid etching onto silver . The pieces in this collection use depletion and oxidation to create subtle differences in colour. Settings with faceted stones are reminiscent of the jewelled stalks of soldier lichen. I appreciate lichens qualities; seeming fragile yet strong, being tenacious, adapting to its environment, being understated, not showy or flashy, but beautiful all the same. This collection has been one of my best sellers, beautiful pieces that are easy to wear, original, contemporary, understated and elegant.
Approx 35mm diameter
925 sterling silver, blue tourmaline

I'm a jewellery designer living in the beautiful Eskdale valley of South West Scotland and working from my studio in our gallery Cut the Mustard. I'm really lucky to live in this area, a simple drive home from work can be like an episode of spring watch, this area teems with wildlife and nature. I'm surrounded by hills and forests, rivers, iron age hill forts and stone circles.
I take inspiration from nature unsurprisingly (it's hard not to!). The more time I can spend outside, the happier I am. I like to feel the seasons, the rain on my face, the frost under my feet (not so keen on feeling the midges in summer though!), the smell of the soil after the rain and the changing colours of the landscape. I appreciate the quiet and the dark skies at night, untainted by noise and streetlights.
My pieces are subtle and elegant, original and beautifully finished. I create in the traditional way, using hand tools and small batch production. It's really important to me that I create by hand and I really enjoy working in this way, I like the process, the melting, milling and forming and the technical challenges. My pieces are often textured and most likely are set with stones (creating mounts and setting stones are my area of interest).
I am a member of the National Association of Jewellers, of Spring Fling/Upland and the recipient of two craft maker awards and a regional arts fund award. I work in silver, gold, palladium and platinum. I sell my work through exhibitions and a selection of lovely galleries in the uk. I'm more than happy to undertake commissions.
