The Sea Range

The Sea Range , 

I have a number of ring designs for sale that are based around my love of the sea and are inspired by many family holiday trips to St Ives in Cornwall .

I often get inspiration for my ring ideas from walking along one of the best beaches, which is just around the headland from Carbis bay – at Lelant Beach.

This is the beautiful beach that you can see from the train as you come into St Ives, and it’s one of my favourite train rides.

commissions- a special brooch

This was a commission from some good friends who wanted to commemorate a special occasion with this distinctive champagne bottle top .

I created it in Silver following my clients brief, to depict bubbles popping, with domes of silver and yellow citrines set in it in a random pattern.

It’s always good to work together with clients on design ideas, and I was sent a picture of  it being worn by her when she received it,- It looked great on her Winter jumper , many thanks to you both for the commission .
