This piece was based on a dressage horse, and the shapes of the links are indicative of the horses movements in the arena.
Created in silver, this is a one off original, but I can design pieces to reflect themes you enjoy too. please feel free to enquire.
This 9ct white gold brooch set with peridot stones as the acorns, was a lovely commission created a while ago, I have just found the image to show you all.
Nature themes are a favorite subject for me and I am happy to work with you to create something special in any form, as a brooch or stick pins etc…
Handmade silver Bracelet designed and created by Helen Burrell ©
Silver Hare running through a fence
This was a commissioned piece handmade for a lady who loves hares, she asked me to design a piece of jewellery for her, and together we came up with this idea.
My client kindly sent me this testimonial once she had collected her special piece :-
I went to see Helen as I had seen her work when I was browsing on the internet for local jewellery designers and it really inspired me. I had in my mind a bracelet that captured the essence of myself and my husband. One of our favourite things to do is to go walking in the countryside as we are both nature lovers. I have a fascination with hares, and my husband has an interest in birds. When I discussed this with Helen she came up with the idea of creating a silver bracelet that looked like a fence with a hare running through the middle of it. I also asked her to incorporate an odd diamond that I had and also I wanted to use some of the gold in a ring that belonged to my gran.
It wasn’t long until Helen emailed me a picture that she had drawn of the bracelet as she imagined it. It was at this point that I knew Helen was the right jewellery designer for me!
The finished bracelet is exquisite and I cannot recommend Helen highly enough. The bracelet captures everything I wanted and more, from the gorgeous hare running through the middle of it to the tiny birds nest with a tiny gold egg nestling in it. Helen is not only a lovely lady but an extremely professional person who interpreted my thoughts really well and created a bracelet I am very proud to wear.
I am enjoying the bracelet very much- I will be saving my pennies up for another fabulous creation!!

I love telling stories in my jewellery and creating pieces that are not based on fashion, -which is always a passing trend, but on something that truly reflects my customers identity and wraps up past memories for them in a beautiful way, as life long expressions and reminders of special times or places.
