Although I dabbled with jewellery making while at junior school, I didn’t really get into it until 2012 when I became one half of Brighid’s Pagan Jewellery, and which I now own.
I use a variety of techniques including metal smithing, casting, glass work (hot, warm and cold), and a little lapidary work. I also dabble with polymer clay, leather work and anything else that takes my fancy.
Most of my jewellery gets listed and sold on in my Etsy shop. I also sometimes take commissions. Some of the pieces show in the gallery below, such as the yin yang pendant (which was made using rose quartz and black onyx) and the scorpion cuff, were commission pieces.
As of 2018 I have begun teaching monthly jewellery workshops in which I teach the kind of techniques that can be done at home with just a few simple tools.
My designs are very much influenced by science, nature and spirituality; something about which I have recently started blogging at scichopagan.com
