I have been designing and making jewellery since 1984, my work is inspired by ancient worlds that collide with modern times giving a twist to my collections. I work mainly in silver incorporating base metals and semi-precious stones to give a hint of colour. I like texture and simplicity, so I often use etching, melting and hammering to create a distressed effect on the surface of materials which gives my work that handmade feel.

My studio is a little treasure trove as I am a fond collector of all things vintage and like to surround myself with inspiration and beauty. You can come and visit my showroom but please call first in case I’m out. I supply mainly gift shops, galleries and a few clothes shops up and down the country and have had many exhibitions at various galleries over the years

We couldn't have enjoyed the day more! Fabulous tutor, inspirational ideas and we were somewhat surprised by what we managed to achieve and create! The home-made Orange cake was a bonus. The studio itself was also wonderfulwe hope to do another day!

Jolene was a warm, friendly and expert host. We loved the workshop space and all the fascinating objects she's collected there, which provide so much inspiration! We were welcomed with a hot drink and homemade brownies (which were delicious). The demonstration was accessible and easy to follow, and gave us all the things we needed to get stuck in for a really productive day. We had the most memorable and enjoyable day together on our hen do. Jolene was so helpful and encouraging about our projects. We feel the class was extremely high value and would recommend anyone to take it. We felt sad to leave. Thank you, Jolene!

Jolene made us both feel very welcome and relaxed as we had no previous experience. We both had a fabulous day and have both made some lovely earrings and a pendant for a necklace. It was a lovely way to spend some quality time with my daughter. Would recommend to all my friends.
