Thank you for taking the time to visit my store... I design and create eye-catching jewellery made out of Pewter. The process includes roughly designing the image onto a blank Pewter sheet and then hammmering the Pewter to emboss the design. Finally attaching it to a metal backing, either a Pendant or Brooch before adding colour and a good polish.
Pewter became very popular in the early 1920's during the Art Nouveau period. It was more affordable than silver and due to its malleability, could be fashioned into very ornate pieces. I wanted to create affordable, high quality products without compromising design. My collection is growing all the time and currently includes Brooches, Pendants, Cufflinks, Handbag Charms and Earrings. I also create Ornamental Mirrors and Photo Frame surrounds in sculpted Pewter.

I can make items again which have already been sold but they may be slightly different due to being hand crafted.
