About Queen's Wood Studio
“I love my earrings – they’re so me.”
When one of my customers said this to me, I realised that I make jewellery so that you can express yourself. Every piece is unique – a piece of wearable art out in the world adorning your ears, your fingers, speaking your personality and becoming part of your beauty.
I find this collaboration humbling! And also a natural extension of my making process. I work by responding to my materials – the way the silver melts and flows, the colours and shapes of the vintage stones I find. I am a collage artist as I select and combine these elements into pieces that feel right. I am a silversmith as I make them into jewellery you can wear.
And when you hold an earring up to your ear, or push a ring onto your finger, and your face shines as you see yourself being you, I feel what an honour it is to be part of bringing that beauty into the world.
P.s. This very beauty compels me to use materials that do not exploit or damage any people or places. I began the process of becoming an eco-friendly brand in April 2015, and since then have committed to using only recycled metals, vintage and antique stones, non-toxic studio chemicals and recycled and recyclable packaging. Please see my eco policies for all the details.
