About crackinggems

crackinggems

I'm Erith at CrackingGems, I make unique, interesting jewellery and one-off metal pieces that you'll never find anywhere else.

I got really interested in making jewellery about 10 years ago. I started with beading, then moved onto silver work, and more recently I am doing a lot of copper work.

I am inspired by nature. I do a lot of silver casting, using twigs as my model. Silver casting is great because it enables me to recycle silver. I cast ingots, and roll a lot of my silver, so many of the pieces are made using recycled silver. The colour and tones of copper remind me of autumn leaves and copper beech hedges, I use recycled copper as much as I can. (Dependent on what is available from family and friends!)

I make one-off pieces, and while sometimes there are similarities with other work I have done, the fun is in making new and different, not 10 things the same. (Though silver twigs do feature quite frequently!) I like combining teechniques, so you'll find pieces made using cast silver, that are also enamelled.
