Behind The Scenes
Jill's distinctive precious metal and gemstone jewellery is all designed and made by hand in her studio that is located in South Lancashire. Jill's work reflects her own personal style and she endeavours to create unique pieces that are understated, timeless yet utterly contemporary.
A break in teaching re-ignited her lifelong passion in art and design which inspired her to follow her ambition to become a bespoke jewellery designer. Her bespoke jewellery is elegant and individual with textured, natural finishes with clean lines. Gemstones add their very own unique shape, texture and character to a piece of work. Jill creates characteristic designs in copper and silver, combined with a variety of techniques & finishes - forging, etching, fretwork, letter stamping, enamelling, casting, oxidisation, wirework and cold connect.
Jill is a fully qualified Reiki Master and Teacher. The essence of reiki is to clean the body and balance the chakras, bringing harmony to mind body and spirit through a detoxifying process as well as promoting a more positive attitude.
As an experienced Reiki Healer, Jill can remove any negative vibrations and charge the gemstones with Reiki healing energy to increase positive energy. Reiki stimulates the body's natural healing ability at the deepest level, removing physical and emotional blockages that may have been causing illness or upset for some time.
Six years on from the start of Jill's love affair in designing and creating jewellery, she already has a loyal and wide-ranging customer base around the world. Much of her work is shipped to the USA where it is very popular.
