Thank you to all my wonderful customers who have shown their support this year. Sadly the Little Studio won’t be open this Christmas but there are alternatives...
Postage is taking longer than usual so don’t leave it to the last minute! Our lovely posties are already very tired, give them a smile or a wave! Last day for 1st class signed for is 21st December but get ahead of the game. Due to show commitments I will be posting on 11th, 15th and 21st December only.
Alternatively come and see me at Cheltenham Arts Markets for my full range and new additions or contact me for local collection/delivery options.
Here’s wishing you a very Merry Christmas! Xx
Silversmith and archaeologist Carol lives and works on the side of the beautiful Malvern Hills and has been making jewellery inspired by prehistoric rock art, the interplay of light and texture and influences from her travels since 2000.
Whether you are searching for a timeless piece that looks great with jeans and a T-shirt for everyday wear or equally stunning with that little black dress, or if you need something unusual for that special occasion please enter my shop to have a look at what's on offer...
The designs have an organic, feel with few straight edges in sight!
The Light and Texture collection is born from exploring the interplay of light and texture on the surface of the metal. Using different processes including planishing, fusing and reticulating, etching and imprinting adds depth and texture to the silver and really brings it to life, enabling it to catch the light beautifully. The Ribbons range is a prime example with fluid, undulating links of reticulated silver, as is its sister, Patchwork Ribbons, where pieces of reticulated silver are fused together to form high-impact pieces.
The Rock Art collection is inspired by my back ground in archaeology and the work I have carried out with prehistoric rock art, with influences coming from around the world. I feel privileged to to work with this amazing resource and to be able to pass this knowledge on. I feel its my way of passing on a little bit of the past and raising peoples awareness of what exists around us.
The Travellers Tales collection, as the name suggests, is inspired by my travels, be it down the garden path or to far flung shores. It incorporates some of natures wonderful gifts, pebbles from a beach in Anglesey, shells from the Scilly Isles and corals from Thailand, all cast in silver and making the most of their intricate textures.
Visit the Shop to discover a varied selection of necklaces, pendants, bracelets, bangles studs and drop earrings in these ranges and more.
Go on, have a look, spoil yourself, or someone else ...
melt my heart pendant
The Melt My Heart pendant comes in two sizes, a lovely large, chunky heart on a heavier snake chain and a tiny, yet still chunky heart on a finer snake chain.
The silver heart is cast from an original formed by melting and fusing pieces of silver and manipulating into a heart shape. The deep texture catches the light and has a true hand made feel. Great for evryday wear.
Ribbon pendant on snake chain
A ribbon of manipulated and reticulated silver, individually crafted ribbon pendant hung on a smooth snake chain. Available in 3 sizes: large, small and skinny.
The large pendant is a one-off piece. The small and skinny ones are cast from originals and have matching drop earrings.
In the photo are the three variations available: large on the left, small in the middle and skinny on the the right.
