About the artist

Ocean inspired artisan jewellery, crafted in recycled precious metals & including seaglass, cuttlefish casting, lampwork beads & ghost rope.

Personal Statement

In December 2015 I combined my love for the ocean with my Goldsmithing & Jewellery degree, to create Selkie Jewellery; a brand led by artistry, passion, and a conservation ethos. My passion is creating handcrafted jewellery in recycled precious metals, using all traditional techniques- including my signature cuttlefish casting, and combining found objects like ghost rope and sea glass to create one of a kind pieces- no two cuttlefish castings are ever the same, like a fingerprint, creating a truly unique piece each time. My jewellery collections include pieces in aid of conservation charities like Marine Conservation Society and Sussex Seabed Restoration Project. I also love to create bespoke pieces working with customer’s own designs, or taking a precious once loved item and re-making it into something new. Big or small- repairs, alterations and re-makes are all under the Selkie umbrella. In 2023 I opened a new Selkie HQ, based in Dell Quay and as result of this fabulous new space- I have now ventured into the marvellous world of teaching! Sharing my skills, and working alongside clients in small groups or one-to-one tuition, students are learning new skills and creating beautiful pieces of jewellery of their very own.
