Personal Statement

Selkie jewellery draws inspiration from the ocean, to create wonderfully unique jewellery. Our collections are based around nature, all life aquatic and the beautiful Sussex coastline on which we live. I use traditional silversmithing and goldsmithing skills in the design and handmaking processes, my favourite technique is a less known casting method using cuttlefish bones found on the beach. This ancient casting method is a wonderfully natural and unique way to create very special pieces of jewellery, with a fascinating texture, each one is like a little piece of the ocean! My Degree in Jewellery making was obtained through the Kent Institute of Art and Design in Rochester. At Selkie Jewellery I create full jewellery ranges, mainly in sterling silver and 9ct gold, as well as bespoke or commission work in all precious metals. I also love to incorporate found objects into my work such as sea glass and fisherman's ghost rope collected during local beach-cleans.
