Featured in the Tamworth Herald!

  A little while ago I received a call from Helen Machin, a journalist from The Tamworth Herald. She had seen one of my posts on a local Facebook page and was intrigued by the fact that I was a local jewellery maker because she also had a passion for jewellery! Helen visited the workshop, carried out her interview, asking how I got into jewellery making and my progression into[...]

Another New Stockist!

We are proud to have a new stockist in Atherstone! The super stylish menswear shop 'Osbourne & Company' now houses an inSilver cabinet of mens jewellery ranging from cufflinks, chains, rings and leather bracelets. Mason, owner of Osbourne & Company, sells a whole range of off the peg and made to measure suits, so our range of jewellery works perfectly to customise and personalise the final look.

Jewellery Modelling.

  It is quite handy having a teenage daughter that likes the camera! I took advantage of some warm September Summer sunshine, set up my camera in the garden and persuaded Tallulah to wear some of my jewellery. It is always useful to see where necklaces hang and how earrings dangle, especially if you are viewing online, so hopefully this will give a good indication of this. I had never[...]

Jewellery Making Workshops

From the start of this year, I have opened the doors of the inSilver Studio and invited people to draw up a chair to the workbench to try their hand at silversmithing. My first session at being teacher was from a request a couple of years ago from my friends, Fiona and Ange. They wanted to make bangles to mark their 40th Birthdays. We gave it a go and their[...]

Nostalgia!

  This week I have been feeling quite nostalgic! My eldest daughter has just completed her GCSE's and is looking forward to an exciting future, I on the other hand, have been looking back on my silversmithing journey! When I first started out, I was in the 'Office' with a load of clutter, a computer table and my workbench. I was then evicted (which was a blessing) into the conservatory.[...]

Fingerprint Jewellery Wishes 4 Kids interview on BBC Radio Leicester

Earlier in the summer I received a phone call from Ushma Mistry, a broadcaster from BBC Radio Leicester! I make fingerprint jewellery for the Leicestershire charity Wishes 4 Kids, the prints from terminally ill children are put onto the jewellery and given as a keepsake to the parents. A Wishes 4 Kids fundraiser had recently donated money to the charity and received a letter to say how the money had[...]

The Wedding – a personal touch!

Everyone loves a good wedding and the all exciting build up! In July I got married and obviously made the jewellery for my bridesmaids, a wedding ring for Andy and I and a few bits for myself.             As my bridesmaids are all specials stars and their dresses were pink, I opted for small star pendants with sparkly pink Swarovski beads. One for my daughters,[...]

A new workshop for 2017!

If you have seen me recently you would have noticed that I have been splattered in white paint! During the Christmas holidays a new workshop area has been constructed, so I have recently traded working with silver for working with a brush and roller! I wanted as much natural light as possible so an upcycled glazed door has been fitted and the original Victorian window has been pruned from plant[...]
