To create a stained glass effect, I used lime and yellow enamel. This technique uses glass which is ground to a powder then fired onto a metal base. I used a plique-a-jour style: the enamel is fired into an open framework, with the result resembling stained glass. It is particularly beautiful with light shining through.


The chain is a 16"/41cm compact (1mm) or 18"/46cm length silver snake chain (12mm), and the pendant measures (2.5cm x 3cm).


I use the highest quality and most popular alloy 925 Sterling Silver sourced responsibly – fair-trade or recycled.


I created the silver leaf collection using a technique called casting. This is a process by which a wax pattern is made into a jewellery mold and then filled with silver grains to create a custom piece of jewellery. It is also called 'lost wax casting' because the wax is always lost during the process of making the jewellery.
