Sylvia designs and hand makes her jewellery using Silver, Gold and semi-precious stones to create several distinctive collections within her jewellery range. In particular she uses the contrasts of colour or texture to create her unique designs.
I have lived in Hampshire for the last thirty five years and been making jewellery for longer than that. Starting off as a hobby it soon became a passion and I registered my own hallmark at Goldsmith's Hall - London in 1978. I sold in craft markets, local shops and exhibitions throughout the seventies and eighties, taking a break after that to return to full time employment in a totally different field. However the lure of jewellery making drew me back as I knew it would.
I particularly like using a contrast of texture or colour in my jewellery by, for example, adding gold or semi precious stones to a silver piece, or by oxidizing the background of a three dimensional item. Influences come from many different areas as I like to continually evolve and develop new styles and try different techniques.
