AK Design jewellery


_DSC0128 copy2

Classic and elegant artisan jewellery designed and created in my studio using mainly silver, copper, pearls and gemstones. My jewellery is personally handmade giving each piece its uniqueness and originality. I play with different techniques; soldering, hand forging, fold forming, textures, and patinas to create contemporary beautiful pieces of jewellery. Recently I have taken to water and broom casting in silver resulting in very organic jewellery pieces.

My love of jewellery making started with a silversmithing course over 20 years ago. I enjoy the process of designing and creating.  It is amazing to see a piece of wire or sheet metal turn into a beautiful piece of jewellery.  My inspiration comes from the many different shapes and textures I see around me.
