Metal Lust Jewellery - An Emporium of precious treasures - Handmade Silver Jewellery- Made In Leigh-on-Sea Affordable Silver Earrings
I’m a contemporary jeweller based in Leigh-on-Sea. Metal Lust describes the quirky jewellery I love to make - without boundaries.
I love the physical processes of silversmithing; hammering down wire into geometric forms, embossing intricate textures and setting semi-precious stones. I’m mindful of using every last scrap of silver and also use recycled silver to create an ever changing range of affordable earrings.
I would describe my collections as an emporium of treasures. I’m interested in the beliefs and traditions jewellery narrates; I explore this by making everyday objects into precious keepsakes, flipping traditional on it’s head. I make silver castings out of popcorn, birthday cake candle holders, balloons, bubble wands, nuts and bolts; transforming their purpose into wearable precious treasures.
I have been making jewellery for over 14 years since graduating from a BA Metalwork & Silversithing Camberwell College Of Art UAL.
with a non traditional background I’m continually honing my skill set and always love the freedoms of being creative in a practical purposeful way.
