Jewellery Workshops


Jewellery workshops are run at the Silver Forge shop and cover traditional techniques as well as silver clay.

You can create the ultimate piece.



If you’re looking for something special, and can’t find it. Get it made.

I work in silver, fine silver and gold – gemstones too.


These are stock items that are currently available or have been sold in the shop.

Some wonderful jewellery that has been made by students during workshops.

Commissioned pieces over the last few years. Some are really unusual.

Example pieces from the Men’s range. In damascus or sterling silver.

Crafted from scratch, for you

Silver, Fine Silver and Gold

I work in silver and gold and can even use yours if you are looking to re-use some old, unworn jewellery and turn it into something fresh and new.

My pieces range from delicate to “substantial” and everywhere in-between. Textures, organic shapes, stones and natural materials can also be included.

Jo_SignatureIf you feel inspired to have a piece crafted from your idea or want to browse the items in stock – pop in and say hello.
