Hello, my name is Jane and I am a designer-maker with a passion for making beautiful, wearable pieces of jewellery, predominantly in silver.
I am working on a Designer Collection inspired by Shakespeare’s plays and characters.
There is so much richness of meaning and imagery in Shakespeare’s works and many of my designs come with a story. It is for this reason that I decided to create a blog, rather than a more conventional website; because I don’t just want to show you what I’ve made and what I’m selling, I want to give you the design stories, the quirky little facts that I’ve discovered along the way and the reasons why my pieces are so special to me.
I usually begin my work by researching a play or idea ‘academically’ and use visual research such as costume embroidery to inform my designs. Shakespeare’s words play an important part in the process but there’s often more to a piece than meets the eye and that’s what this blog is all about.
I hope that you enjoy what you read and love what you see. If you have any comments, or would like to own a piece of Shakespeare-inspired, handcrafted jewellery, please don’t hesitate to contact me using the form below.
I look forward to sharing my journey with you.
