Paper2pearls sums up the two materials I work with most when creating my jewellery – though rarely do I use the two together, and sadly I have not discovered a way of turning paper into pearls!
Gilli’s Flowers is my range of jewellery and gifts made by using paper from unwonted or “dead” copies of classic and well-known books. What marks it unique is the range of books I use, designs related to specific books and how my customers are able to choose pieces made from books which are meaningful. I also make bridal headpieces and pieces from vintage sheet music. I hand fold the origami elements by hand and finish them using several coats of top quality waterproof varnish.
Cultured pearl jewellery
Glover and Greenwood celebrates the unique beauty of pearls and the variety of cultured pearls available today. Most of my pieces are made using Chinese freshwater pearls in all their amazing variety of types shapes and colours but I also have a smaller range of pieces using Japanese Akoya, Tahitian black and South Sea pearls. I design and make all pieces myself using a range of techniques including traditional hand knotting. I have a bespoke bridal range and I’m always happy to accept commissions.
I also offer a restringing or reknotting service.
I have my own jewellery studio in Yaxley handily positioned at the bottom of my garden. I am fully insured and a member of the Guild of Jewellery Designers.
