After years of picking up shells on beaches in Scotland, getting inspired by leaves and giving silver handprints to friends and family, I decided it was time to focus on making jewellery. My wee beans are growing up and so, finally, Silverbean is here.
I make each piece of jewellery from my small workshop in the garden. I love the way it takes my mind away from the hurly burly of life to focus on crafting something that people look at and say, "Oooh that's beautiful." My favourite is the handprint jewellery, which is totally unique and special to the person that I am making it for.
I have made jewellery from shells that people have found on beaches which hold a special place in their hearts, or even bits of ceramic or glass they have found on their beach walks. Please contact me if you have any special requests or commissions.
I feel like I have been on holiday after a jewellery session and I hope that these creations take you somewhere too.
