Handmade Bespoke Contemporary Jewellery 


Louise's work is based and inspired by the land, nature and my relationship with the natural world.   During her childhood, Louise was an avid collector and maker of many things and loved painting.  She chose a creative route, with a career after finishing a Batchelor of Arts degree in art and design,  working in and running a contemporary craft gallery and recently completed a Masters in Curation Practices.  Louise's work now involves all three strands of experience and skills and she enjoys the collaboration with artists, businesses and the environment where she lives in North Yorkshire.

The making of handmade jewellery by Louise reflects her long interest in craft and design, and working with many different customers and artists over her career it is possible to discuss with her your specific needs. Also described on the gallery website there are possibilities of redetermining old jewellery or designing a new piece to suit your individual wishes.
