After many years working as a graphic and digital designer I wanted to use my creative skills in a more hands-on/off screen way.
I discovered silversmithing after attending a short workshop as a treat during a tricky time of life.
After investing in my first set of equipment and experimenting with techniques, I soon became hooked and haven't looked back.
Years later I am still making new designs and haven't lost my passion for this satisfying craft.
A well as creating jewellery from new silver, I also like the challenge of repurposing older silver, such as making bangles from vintage silver toast racks and rings from silver spoons etc.
I'm always happy to help with bespoke orders where needed and find nothing more satisfying than polishing up a finished piece.
Rock & Solder handmade silver jewellery is designed to be worn with a bit of attitude. All items are designed and handcrafted using traditional silversmithing techniques and made with a real enjoyment and passion for the craft.
