Meet the maker THERESA HING

Welcome to my Folksy shop
Working with Sterling Silver (925) is so rewarding. It's such a forgiving material. It can be shaped and pushed as far as you are willing to take it.
I especially like using forging techniques to shape and form the silver, leaving the surface with the evidence of the marks I have inflicted on it.
I may add gold leaf accents to the pieces (Keum Boo) or 9ct,14ct gold, precious and semi-precious gemstones or unusual cabochons.
My designs are usually one-off. It is impossible to fully replicate a forged piece, and if I can there will be differences due to the characteristics of metal and stones.
These subtle differences are to be celebrated as the mark of a handmade piece made specially for you.
Please contact me if you would like to discuss a commission. Most rings can be made in different sizes along with chains and bangles etc.
I am always looking into new ways of working with silver, and these designs will eventually find their way into my shop, so please keep looking…
