Artisan sterling silver and gemstone jewellery

Hello, I'm Dianne, I live in Derbyshire, England. I have a BA(Hons)Degree in textile design, but I have enjoyed all types of art from an early age.

In the past, I have designed wallpaper and fabrics, printed scarves and cushions, married my lovely husband, owned an antique shop, painted landscapes, restored an 18th century cottage (by hand!), made assemblage art and loved many dogs.

After a few years absence, I am back listing items in my Folksy shop, as I am currently loving (and have time for!) making gemstone jewellery again. I love the colours and textures of these amazing natural stones and try to do them justice by pairing them with organic, often entwined, sterling silver. Some pieces are earthy and rustic, while some are delicate and understated. I let the character and finish of the stone dictate the style and feel of the piece, often inspired by nature. I make most of the silver findings myself.

Three things I couldn't be without..... pyjamas, a dog and a nice cup of tea!

Thank you for visiting Argante Studios.
