Having recently relocated from Lancaster, it is a dream come true to be working as a jeweller in the Ironbridge Gorge. I have admired the beauty of the Severn Valley for almost 20 years whilst visiting friends in Coalport. During this time I have worked as an office administrator but my creative interest has been in Silversmithing. This year I have taken the leap of faith to “give up the day job” and move South, being fortunate enough to start my business, MIST Jewellery, in the idyllic setting of the Maws Craft Centre.
Silversmithing is my passion, it’s in my blood! I love manipulating metal like my blacksmith ancestors before me; beating silver wire into organic shapes, such as stylised daisies and simplified butterflies, to create my distinctive hammered jewellery. I often combine these forms with freshwater pearls, using the irregular characteristics of the stones to compliment my unique style.
