Fiona began her journey into jewellery making in 2004 following a course with Anton Pruden at Pruden Smith’s workshops.
She found that not only was silver smithing and jewellery making creative, but also extremely satisfying. The ancient skills of making jewellery have not really altered over hundreds of years.
Much of Fiona’s work takes inspiration from her surroundings in the country, such as the English Rose collection created for the Queens Diamond Jubilee and also her love of beach combing in Cornwall, collecting stones and shells from when she was a child. This forms the basis of the Cornish Sea Shell Collection.
With an abiding love of gem stones, Fiona’s taken a Diploma in Gemmology and is a Fellow of the Gemmological Association of Great Britain. Much of her jewellery is made using the coloured gem stones she adores, particularly unusual stones, which give a unique personality to each piece she designs and ensures that her clients purchase a truly original piece of jewellery.
