After a year solidly working at a jewellers in Bristol i have decided to start making my own jewellery again. a few extra pieces to add on to my saltmarsh ' graduate' collection. all these pieces are influenced from flora and native saltmarsh plants to the welsh coastline ... and my home of pembrokeshire. These pieces consist of a mixture of cad designed elements as well as hand wax carved pieces ~
mostly sterling silver as well as some solid 9ct gold pieces , all embellished with rose cut precious gemstones ( diamonds, alexandrite , labrodite , iolite , rhodolite garnets and TOURMALINE'S ) ~ i really went to town with the gems here...

''Look out across an island-dotted seascape from a wild landscape full of rocky outcrops, prehistoric monuments and a fantastic array of coastal wildlife on this rugged circular walk.''
