Unusual silver jewellery and accessories celebrating birds, botanicals, butterflies and all the other beauty found in the natural world, each piece beginning with an original photograph. Made in a riverside studio in Walton on Thames.
'Capturing nature, taking only a photo' is the ethos of Shutter Jewellery.
Each jewellery piece contains a scaled down version of one of my own original photographs and I look for striking detail, shape or colour which will be just as bold on a tiny scale. This could a whole image of a tiger's face or maybe a pattern found within a bird's feather or on a tropical leaf, for example. The photographs are used in a number of ways, but my signature pieces use a little pebble of glass over the top which magnifies the detail and looks just like a tiny version of the real thing. I work in 925 sterling and 999 fine silver.
I work as eco conciously as possible, using minimal plastic and disposable material and creating beautiful, high quality peices that will last a lifetime.
All work is made in my riverside studio at Anglers Wharf in Walton on Thames which is open to visitors.
Anglers Wharf, Manor Road, Surrey KT122PF, United Kingdom
Studio is located next door to the Anglers Pub, right on the towpath.
