Jewellery

For the last 30 years I have been buying silver, some old some new. From souks in Oman, sitting on a dusty floor and excitedly sifting through piles of old silver tipped out of sacks, to a tiny workshop at the top of some ancient stone steps in the Khan El Khalil in Cairo. To me, silver is more beautiful than gold, so soft to feel and easy to wear. Yes, you have to polish it, but the joy of transforming a dirty tarnished piece of silver to me is magical!

These are my necklaces made from a variety of stones and silver, also some old amulets and trading beads going back centuries. Most necklaces are unique. All of the new silver beads I use have been handmade in a small family workshop in Cairo, some in Istanbul Turkmenistan and Ethiopia. I also love using the wax cast bronze beads from Ghana which you will see on my website. I will occasionally use gold plated silver. Sometimes, I can repeat designs to order, but you would have to contact me to discuss this. I am also happy to create a unique piece of jewellery for you. Again, you would need to email me so we can discuss the finer details of the design.
