Metal Magic and Earth Treasures
I work primarily with a medium called Metal Clay - it comes in many different types - I mostly use Silver, Bronze and Copper, which I model, carve, mould, fire it in a small jewellers kiln, and voila ... ALCHEMY! I combine this with traditional metalsmithing techniques and gemstones.
Just a note on the types of Silver I use ... Fine Silver is 999% pure silver and is very white and beautiful, but very soft - which is useful for some applications, but not others - when I refer to *Enriched Sterling* the purity is roughly 950-960 and sometimes even as high as 975 (Standard Sterling is 925) - also soft and malleable but after firing a lot stronger than pure (Fine) Silver.
Welcome! I live and work in a Unique and Magical place - Avebury in Wiltshire, the site of the ancient Stone Circle. I am a self taught jewellery designer and craftswoman. Inspired by the changing seasons, the natural world and The Magic of it all!
