Lesley Adolphson

I have always spent time making things. As a child I made doll’s clothes after learning to knit and sew alongside my¬† mother. As an adult I continued to make clothes, bags and jewellery. At Teacher Training College my personal study subject was ceramics. Skills I acquired back in the seventies are now in full use again in my work with metal clay.

I started making silver jewellery in 2009 when I embarked on a City & Guilds Silver Jewellery Making course. It wasn’t long before I discovered silver metal clay. What an amazing material; I couldn’t believe my luck – to be able to make pieces in clay, fire them and they turn into metal…fine silver. Wow! This material has inspired me!

I specialise in making free-form hollow beads and many of my pieces contain one or more of these bespoke beads. I use silver metal clay to make pendants and also charms for earrings and bracelets in conjunction with sterling silver wire and sheet.

I make jewellery that I would like to wear myself and what a joy to create striking individual pieces that others love too!
