Hand made jewellery in sterling silver with pottery shards found on Jersey beaches, pearls, semi precious or precious stones, using traditional silversmithing techniques. I design and make each piece in my studio in Jersey, Channel Islands.

The pottery shards are found on Jersey's beaches, leftovers from the shipwrecks along Jersey's south coast in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, as the ships travelled from China to London stocked with crates of tea leaves, unaware of the rocky coastline and the huge tidal range of 24 feet. The shards are mostly parts of plates with the Willow Pattern design, a story about forbidden love, which were used as ballast on the boats to prevent capsizing.
