'I have been working with clay for over 20 years now and have loved every moment working with such a versatile and exciting material. I was first introduced to working with clay by my very inspiring secondary school teacher who encouraged me to use all the facilities available in a very well stocked ceramics studio (I was very lucky!). I am based in Lancashire and in my studio I create contemporary ceramic wrap pots, bowls and wall plaques alongside an extensive range of handcrafted ceramic jewellery. My jewellery is individually handmade from finest smooth porcelain, black porcelain or black Vulcan clay. They are decorated with slips, impressed to create the surface design and glazed with splashes of colour and oxides to highlight the textures before being high fired for durability. The marks made on all my work are created with man-made objects such as screws and nails found on the street, or from parts of circuit boards salvaged from abandoned electrical goods. This way of impressing marks into clay is a reflection of my long-held fascination with the concept of future fossils and how the throw away nature of modern life affects the land.' Prices range from £15 to £28

His work is all designed and hand made by him in his studio in Sheffield. His jewellery is designed to appeal to both men and women but with particular focus on jewellery for men. The jewellery is made using a combination of media, chiefly silver, gold, ceramics and mild steel, and he includes 18ct gold, diamonds and vitreous enamels to create detail and pattern. As for his inspiration Mark says ' My work is inspired by two main strands of influence, which are, abstract symbols such as road markings, coupled with my interest in the reactions of 3D media to applied processes. I utilise these material reactions in combination with abstract symbols and pattern to create jewellery and other forms of design work which are sophisticated, refined and well made.'

Adele studied three dimensional design, silversmithing and jewellery at Sheffield Polytechnic and established her jewellery business soon after with a grant from the Princes Youth Business Trust.
The interplay of different colours of metal, both naturally occurring and chemically altered has always interested Adele. Consequently she continually experiments with the use of different metals such as silver, gold, copper and pewter.
“The working properties of the media have a significant and creative influence on the final outcome of the work. I like the way you can draw on the surface by stamping and embossing. I have always been interested in surface pattern and texture, and I find acid etching a wonderful way of drawing directly onto the metal”.
We stock a selection of Adele's jewellery, along with her unique kaleidoscopes. Please contact us for our current collection. Prices range from £61 - £94

Helen’s jewellery is inspired by illustration and is based on natural themes such as birds and trees, produced in a distinctively quirky style that is instantly recognisable. ‘I am particularly interested in the use of pattern and naïve folklore in illustration and seek to combine these ideas in my jewellery.’ After graduating from the University of Derby with a design degree in 2004, Helen knew that her real passion was to make jewellery, and set about learning how to do that.
Today, working from her home studio in Nottingham, Helen creates her jewellery from cutting and stamping silver sheet and wire. The collection is mainly in silver, with accents of copper and brass for colour and texture. Helen uses detailed pattern effectively to ‘draw’ on the surface of the silver, using techniques such as stamping and oxidising, creating an individual look and feel to the jewellery. Prices range from £60 - £130

My work reflects my love of printmaking and jewellery, and the endless possibilities of mixing the two disciplines to create something a little bit out of the ordinary. Using traditional etching techniques, together with the wonderful chemistry of patinas and enamels, I recreate the textures and colours of my beloved English landscape and its flora and fauna. This can be a joyously unpredictable process and it means that no two of my pieces will ever be exactly the same. Priced between £20 - £300.
I work in unusual combinations of metals - etched copper and brass for clocks, with blue titanium details, and the same materials with silver for jewellery.

We also stock a good selection of Jill's clocks. Prices range from £40 - £60
