Unique designs in bespoke silver jewellery

I'm Louise Mary, a contemporary artist silversmith and jeweller, author and jewellery tutor based in South Derbyshire near Burton on Trent. I studied BA (Hons) Metalwork and Jewellery at Sheffield Hallam University and have been a practicing silversmith since 2005. In that time my pieces have been showcased throughout the UK, from independent craft galleries to venues such as Goldsmiths' Hall and the V&A in London.

I love creating stylish, handmade contemporary jewellery and silverware designs, inspired by nature.

I often work to commission, creating one-off designs for clients, such as bespoke engagement rings, wedding rings and eternity rings, so please do contact me to discuss your ideas. I also offer jewellery making workshops from my home in the National Forest in South Derbyshire, including my award winning ‘make your own wedding ring’ jewellery course.

My first book, 'Making Silver Jewellery' was published by Crowood Press in 2014, and followed up by my second book, 'Fold Forming For Jewellers and Metalsmiths' in 2017.

Wedding Ring Workshops

Making your own wedding rings is a wonderful symbol of love and offers the chance to spend a memorable day as a couple creating your wedding bands which you will wear forever. Join me in my quiet rural studio where I will give you the guidance you need through every step to making your own wedding rings.

My studio is situated near Rosliston, in the National Forest in South Derbyshire, close to Burton upon Trent, and within easy reach of Staffordshire, Warwickshire, and Leicestershire, and centrally located between the East Midlands and West Midlands regions.

I'm delighted that my wedding ring workshops have been recognised for two years running, gaining 'Jeweller of the Year' at the English Wedding Awards in 2018 and 2019.

Covid-19 update: after lockdown, workshops restarted in July 2020 with a comprehensive range of Coronavirus safety measures in place. Please get in touch for full details or to arrange a consultation.
