Simple, elegant, fine and sterling silver jewellery

Hello, my name is Gemma. Thank you for popping by to my page. Hope you enjoy looking at my jewellery. Do message me if you have any questions.

I live in a lovely village just outside of Romsey in the South East of England with my hubby and 10 year old little lad. Jewellery making has always been part of my life. I remember making brooches using fimo clay whilst at school, then turning to beaded jewellery, before venturing into traditional silver smithing jewellery at an evening class. But then, life took over and my hobby fell away. It was after my little lad was born and I was looking to have a little 'me' time, that I re-discovered my love of jewellery making - firstly in the form of silver clay and then a return to traditional silver smithing. I love to incorporate both mediums in my work.

Silver clay consists of microscopic particles of silver suspended in an organic binder to create a material with a similar consistency to that of modelling clay. It can be textured, moulded, sculpted and shaped. When heated to high temperatures, the binder burns away and the metal particles fuse together to form silver. Its magic!

Fine Silver is the purest form of silver, and the one I use. Its 999 parts silver out of 1000.

Sterling Silver comes in sheet and wire form. It can also can be textured, formed and shaped. It is a mixture of silver and copper – 925 parts silver out of 1000, with the remaining 75 parts being copper.

I've diplomas silver clay, am part of an online learning community in silver clay, and also take a weekly class in silver smithing techniques. Like all craft, there is always more to learn (and more tools to buy!)

My inspiration is very much about comfort, simplicity, elegance and hares!

Yep - hares! I love them, and we are lucky enough to be treated to them visiting our garden - I'm always inspired to incorporate them in my jewellery.
