Welcome to my workshop, based in the old Chapel in the centre of the pretty village of Belstone, within Dartmoor National Park.
Over the years the old Chapel has seen many different uses – including as a meeting room, a family home, the village Post Office & shop and it’s now home to my workbench and tools.
All my pieces are made using a mix of antique and new silver, often incorporating old ‘things’ that I have found in Antique Fairs and more often than not French Brocante Markets, which I must admit are a bit of a passion of mine.
Often I use old solid silver spoons and other pieces of cutlery, but equally have found antique necklaces with beautiful and unusual beads that I can use in new pieces – I must admit that I really enjoy being able to give a new purpose to something, that would otherwise have been left lying in a drawer or would have simply just been discarded.
As the website develops you will be able to see my work and I’ll keep you updated with the new pieces I have made, giving a bit of information about where they came from and what inspired me to make them.
