Meet the maker Debbie Rowlands

I have had an interest in jewellery for many years and remember as a child searching though my mum's box of inherited treasures and wondering how something so beautiful was made.

I began making beaded jewellery over ten years ago but always yearned to learn more about the exciting world of silversmithing so for the last two years I have been taking a part time course in silversmithing, I am currently on my third year.

All my jewellery is designed and handmade by me in my very small home studio in South Wales UK.
I enjoy working with fine and sterling silver and beautiful gemstones, I love patterns and textures and often use these in my work this could be something as simple as the pattern from a dried leaf found in my garden, or a piece of vintage lace with its intricate pattern.

My jewellery is inspired by my love of nature and I have a slight obsession with all things birdie.
I have a love of old items so vintage inspiration creeps into my work at times.

All jewellery that weighs over 7.78g is hallmarked with my unique sponsor mark at the Birmingham assay office.

Thank you for looking. x
