A special peridot Turtle ring 🐢💍,created for the wonderful @lollip1969. I’m really pleased with the way this shot has turned out.
Back home | I haven’t said hello 👋 for a while so I thought I’d take the plunge and introduce myself. I’m Catherine and I design and make jewellery from my shop and atelier in the heart of the Pantiles in Tunbridge Wells. After leaving the Royal College of Art I was lucky enough to have my first studio at the wonderful Cockpit Arts. When I moved out of London with my young family I loved the idea of creating a space to make jewellery where I could also showcase my finished collections – inspired by a Victorian workshop. It’s just me so next time you are in Tunbridge Wells do stop by and say hello.
This reptile at @newquayzoo was pretty amazing. It's colour immediately made me think of this months' birthstone colour peridot.
The perfect Winter bedroom in @nationaltrust Lanhydrock near Bodmin. I love the citrine yellow wallpaper.
Having a wonderful time exploring Cornwall - despite the very English weather! This red tailed racer snake made me think immediately of Harry Potter - Parseltongue and Slyterin 🐍
My French display case captured beautifully by @richardparsonsphoto a while back for Period Living.
Grouping things by colour makes me very happy. 💚🦎🌿
Seasons ring | Worn beautifully here by the talented @allthatisshe
Gold standard | A couple visited me recently with a beloved silver cuff they had bought many years ago in South America. In the light of a restaurant one evening the cuff had appeared gold. They’d completely fallen for the gold version so asked me to create an interpretation. Here’s my finished piece in 9ct gold – swipe right (third image) to see the silver original.
A tale of two poets | These earrings were inspired by the poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy and have just found a wonderful home with inspiring local poet @houseworkaverse
