We are a Group of Contemporary Jewellers who design and make original Jewellery using traditional techniques in a variety of metals and precious or semi-precious stones.

We are all local to Bristol and Bath and work together in a lively and friendly environment Although we have all undergone the same training our work is individual and reflects our different personalities so you will find all kinds of styles and techniques used to produce our eclectic ranges.

I work mainly with Anodised Aluminium and make jewellery that I hope is fun to wear. I use bold colours with simple shapes to represent birds, flowers and sea creatures.

I am drawn to working with both silver and red gold, finding their coolness and warmth compliment each other giving the jewellery a distinctive design edge. I love bold, strong textural pieces, a character I try to incorporate onto my work.

Forming, cutting and texturing silver is something I love to do. Combining pearls into the design is my speciality although I often use semi precious stones too.

I design contemporary jewellery using gold, silver and precious stones whose magical colours have attracted me since childhood. Combined they add glamour and grace to the human form.

Touchmark Chris PateNature is my inspiration and I collect specimens from which I draw or doodle. Often a new collection may emerge from a simple walk with the dogs. I enjoy the creative process and special satisfaction can come from hand finishing a piece and seeing it develop into a beautiful piece of jewellery.

My work can incorporate fused glass, cabochons or semi precious stones, but lately I have concentrated on simple silver designs using geometric shapes that produce elegant statement pieces.

I have a passion for big beads, and make necklaces from semi precious stones combined with silver beads and hand made clasps that make them individual. I also enjoy transforming silver by beating and hammering to produce organic forms which become unique earrings or bangles.

My work often incorporates texture and movement to make each piece eye catching and original. I am influenced by architecture and antique jewellery and use a variety of gems and semi precious stones with silver
