I mainly make silver jewellery. But I play with wood and glass too, and I have lots of salvaged bits (of all sorts of things) 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 and, for the last few months, a little studio space outside of home.
