I have always loved creating and whilst at home caring for my young family I made lots of jewellery and discovered the joy of working with clay. I set up a work space and bought a small electric kiln and set to work. Since then I have been developing my skills and ideas to produce porcelain jewellery and gifts.
I enjoy using porcelain because of the vast possibilities it offers. I find it imprints really well, its elasticity makes it easy to work with. I love its purity, soft feel and delicate look. It’s perfect for jewellery. The coast line here in Cornwall provides a wealth of inspiration, colours, shapes and textures. I also take inspiration from other forms of nature, flowers, butterflies and birds are favourites of mine.
I recently became a member of the Made in Cornwall Scheme. Follow me on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest details about where you can buy my work. You can also purchase selected items online via Etsy
All my jewellery is individually constructed from porcelain. I use various techniques to texture and glaze the pieces. Once I have shaped and textured the clay it is left to dry, when the clay is completely dry I bisque fire it in my electric kiln. Once it has been bisque fired it is then ready to glaze. At this stage I fire the porcelain again, this time to a much higher temperature.
Once fired, I then combine the porcelain piece with silver plated jewellery parts, such as earring hooks, brooch backs or chains for pendants. I also use a range of silver, glass and plastic beads as well as my own porcelain beads, handmade buttons, ribbon and waxed coated cotton on some designs. The finished item is a beautiful handcrafted unique piece of ceramic jewellery.

Items must be returned within 14 days of purchase in the same condition they were sent to you. Once I have received the item I will issue a refund for the purchase price only, unfortunately I can not cover the cost of return postage and packing.

Please note: Photographs are a representation of the design and colour. Each piece is individually handmade and therefore may vary slightly in shape and colour. I usually stock more than one of each item so if you require more of the same design or would like a different colour please get in touch. If I do not have the item you would like in stock and you would like to order a specific design please be aware that due to the processes involved with ceramic production time will need to be considered when placing an order. Usually an item will take three weeks from start to finish.
Jewellery Care please be aware that the jewellery is not designed to be worn in water, this will weaken the glue. Unglazed porcelain can mark when in contact with make-up and body lotions.
