Janet specialises in Silver and Semi-precious stones with a focus on texture and free flowing designs.
She takes inspiration from just about everything around her; changing landscapes, fossils, agates, natural objects.
She feels good ideas result from experimental work motivated by the pleasure of designing jewellery.
Each piece of her jewellery is handcrafted so most of her designs are unique.
Designs that she may have chosen to make again have slight variations and she will use different semi-precious stones.
She started learning silversmithing about 17 years ago by attending evening classes at Ayr, Cardonald and North Glasgow College. She has also attended weekend courses at Brazen Studios and Vanilla Ink Studios in Glasgow.
“I love learning new and traditional techniques and to experiment with silver.”
