Sterling Silver & Mother of Pearl Earrings
Paul, an emeritus prefessor at the university I studied my Masters degree at, asked me about creating a replica of a piece of his wife's jewellery for her birthday.
The piece was a pear shape mother of pearl set into a decorative cast setting. To retain symmetry, I made the original earring into a pendant and made two matching pieces which I mounted onto hooks to make some drop earrings. They turned out pretty well if you ask me!
Sterling Silver Lithocast Pendant
Mum commissioned me to make a Lithocast necklace of her dad, my Grandad for my Aunties 60th birthday in January 2022.
My auntie emigrated to France several years ago and struggles to return home.
I used a photograph my mum took of Pud during the days she was into photography, it's one of our favourites - he was such a handsome chap!
Keeley's Baby Scan Lithocast Locket Christmas 2022
Commissioned by my great uncle Ronnie. This Lithocast locket was gifted to his Granddaughter, Keeley on Christmas Day 2022 to celebrate the future arrival of her baby, who was born in April 2023.
This was a special commission indeed, not only was it my first locket, but this was the first time I've used one of my Lithocasts as a component in the construction of a piece of jewellery I had made. The locket also spins on the bail... did I mention it was a special commission?
Commissions are available on this locket, please see the shop tab for more info

For her 18th Birthday, Her mum, Zoe, selected the stone and asked me to set it in silver for her.
