Hi my name is Anne and I am a jewellery designer/maker living in Derbyshire. Most of my jewellery is made from sterling silver. I have a number of collections made by the lost wax method. My inspiration for these collections is my love of everything English, old cottages, country gardens, tea time and handbags and boots.
I also like to make jewellery from silver wire which I shape and solder and then add colour by winding Swarovski crystals in and out of the designs.
I also use vintage items to make other collections, such as old glass drops from chandeliers. I have recently acquired some red and pink glass drops which I join together with silver wire and Swarovski crystals.
Other collections are made using antique lace, old buttons, vintage and modern charms and recycled textiles. I am always on the lookout for interesting pieces that I can add to jewellery such as parts from old watches.
I have sold my work through fairs and festivals but more recently I am concentrating on trying to sell on the internet.
