ARTISAN JEWELLERY.   07817 25732     [email protected]

Stephen Grieve is a jeweler and goldsmith, creating simply beautiful pieces in Silver, enhanced with gold and copper.

His inspiration comes from the raw beauty of silver and the ebb and flow of natural designs. He takes the melted raw metal and crafts it into individual pieces that vary in design and are highly finished.


BARBARA HELMS.     07825 252003     [email protected]

Barbara Helms uses various media to produce bold and expressive work.


CAROL BECKETT.      [email protected]

Responding to the landscape is a big motivator for Carol's work, but she is equally inspired by people, things, family, and feelings.

Carol enjoys an eclectic mix as well as the physical and mental challenge of working “outside the box” whatever the medium, so when happy accidents occur, they are definitely the most rewarding.
