Hello, I'm Hazel a Bournemouth based handmade jeweller creating designs that combine sustainable materials with vintage inspiration to make contemporary jewellery.
I started making jewellery in 2014 when I couldn’t find jewellery to go with my alternative bridal style (think vintage & purple!) Over the years thanks to the help of Youtube & online courses I explored different materials & techniques, including beading, polymer clay & resin. But I was never happy with the amount of waste produced or using silver plated materials as once they tarnished there's no way to clean them.
In 2020 I decided to rebrand to align my jewellery with my goal of making sustainable jewellery. Thanks to the hardwork of The Jewellers Academy I learnt how to use this new material, along with some silver smithing skills.
Silver clay is an amazing material that is made from recycled silver, an organic binder & water! You literally start with a piece if clay which can be reworked at any stage, so there is no waste.
During the firing process the clay is magically turned into pure 999 silver
I love that the jewellery I make doesn't harm the earth & that it will be worn & enjoyed by someone on their journey
