Ditherella is me, Jenny. The name came from my efforts to find a unique email address, and then became my business name. The Workshop is my space at home where I hoard useful things and cable in all kinds of making.
I’ve been focusing on silver jewellery for a while now, but there may be creations in other mediums in the pipeline. I have lots of salvaged bits waiting to become something!
My jewellery training is mainly from part time classes at Warwickshire College and Birmingham School of Jewellery. I still use the jewellery saw that I got in my teens, although at that stage I had no idea there was such a thing as a jewellery school.
I’ve also had a go at leaded stained glass, pottery, glass blowing, glass fusing, lamp-working, stone carving, and wood-turning, among other things, and I really fancy a go at blacksmithing.
I live in Rugby town centre with my husband and two young boys. In addition to Ditherella’s Workshop have three casual jobs and a messy house (so no studio visits)!
