Spotlight on Hand Crafted Fine Silver Jewellery!

Harleston Corncuopia

Fine Silver Jewellery by Jane Williams.

Unique, handcrafted, pieces using Silver Clay.

Silver Clay has three natural ingredients: pure silver powder, water and a non-toxic wood pulp.

Silver powder is a recycled product from the photographic and film industry.

The ingredients are mixed forming a pliable substance to make individual pieces.

Once fired the pieces become a 99.9% piece of solid silver 999.

The pendant chains and fittings I use to complete the jewellery are silver 925.
