The Champagne Collection

 

Inspired by the effervescence of champagne bubbles

the Champagne Collection is a beautiful range, the

epitome of luxury and style.

Sterling silver ‘bubbles’ are enhanced with gold and freshwater pearls. The exquisite combination of colour, texture and shape means this range will be complimentary to the looks of most ladies. Whether you are after elegant jewellery for work wear, sophisticated city chic, or statement style for a special occasion there is something in this stunning collection that you will love and wear over and over again.

 

The Spring Collection

Cherry Blossom Signifies the Renewal of Spring

Spring is my favourite time of year. The countryside explodes with new life and colour and everything is fresh and exciting. When the trees in my garden are covered with beautiful blossom I know Spring has arrived. Cherry blossom represents Spring to me and so is featured in my Spring Collection.

A Cherry Blossom branch has been carefully etched  into matt oxidised sterling silver domes and 24 carat gold added to create this exquisite collection.

Lily Collection

Elegant, stylish and timeless.

The Lily Collection remains one of my most popular designs. Inspired by the Arum Lily flower, this jewellery has clean lines and simple beauty. Hand made in sterling silver, this collection continues to be loved and admired by discerning ladies who appreciate uncluttered design and style.

The centre piece of this collection is the Lily Torque, a stunning statement piece, guaranteed to attract admiring looks and comments. This torque has been purchased to be worn by the bride at her wedding, at a gala dinner, the opera, a special evening event and Ascot. It is also often given for a Christmas gift, a special birthday present and to mark an anniversary. Very often the torque is bought just because ‘she loves it’ with no occasion in mind. Whether you choose to wear this piece daily, or for more special occasions it is sure to be one you return to time and time again.

There are two beautiful bangles available in this range, as well as a choice of lovely pendants, stud and drop earrings and a fabulous adjustable ring. There are also lily cufflinks so that the men can feel special too! The pendants and earrings have a flattering shape and are available in different sizes, so that you are sure to find the jewellery which is perfect for you.

Any of this range can be commissioned to order in 9ct or 18ct gold. It is also possible to have a silver piece with a gold lily stamen for contrast and warmth.

Wearing any of the Lily Collection will make you look and feel, elegant, sophisticated and special.

      I am passionate about designing jewellery elegant, stylish jewellery that will be cherished and worn with pride.

      I work in both silver and gold, but love to combine the two metals as this produces pieces which compliment both warm and cool complexions. All my jewellery exists in collections to include necklaces, braclets, cuffs, earrings and rings.

      Towards the end of 2019 I created two new jewellery collections, The Be-Leaf Collection and

      The Be-Leaf collections consists of elegant, matt finished leaves which are hinged together to form beautiful , flowing jewellery. There is a gorgeous statement necklace, pendants and a variety of earrings in this collection. Belief is paramount to achievement. Having the right attitude is essential for success in all that we do. Wear this jewellery to remind yourself to have belief in yourself and your abilities.

      "Whether you think you can, or you think you can't - you're right" Henry Ford.

      Sterling silver, matt finish leaf necklace

      The  was inspired by my yoga practice. The smooth , tactile teardrop is designed to be touched and rotated. The teardrop shape represents the Gyan Mudra , a hand position in yoga. The thumb and first finger are pressed together to forma teardrop shape. This pose reduces depression, anxiety and stress, inducing calm and helping restore your inner balance. The teardrop also symbolises mindfulness- the practice of being totally present , neither inn the past or the future. William Blake said that presence is the gateway to eternity. The greatest gift you can give someone is your total and undivided presence. The Balance collection is available as necklaces , pendants and earrings, helping your be present and in Balance every day.

      Sterling silver and 24 ct gold vermeil feather pendantsThe Blu Feather Spirit is made in sterling silver and sterling silver and 24ct gold vermeil. This collection with both the younger and more mature lady not just because of the attractive design , but also due to the symbolism associated with the feather. The poem below signify what the feather means to me:

      "Let me be like a feather, 

      Strong with Purpose,

      Good Principles & values,

      Flexible & forgiving,

      Never rigid or unfeeling.

      Should I stray from my path,

      Know that I can self heal

      And find my way once more."
