What lights your fire?

According to astrologists, the Zodiac element for the Aries star sign is fire.

I am an Aries and certainly enjoy burning the leaves threatening to clog the storm drains at this time of year! Watching the orangey flames catch with a sudden “whump” gives a colourful thrill!

It also reminds me of starting the fire within. Igniting the imagination, giving the oxygen of life to your dreams.

Fire in Your Belly

What does it mean to follow your dreams?  To explore your hunch?  To investigate your inkling?

The adventurer within me led to my becoming a Goldsmith, to becoming a creator of hand made jewellery. Jewellery with character and individuality which has taken time to make using high quality materials and professional workmanship.

Many’s the time I’ve faced the question “why don’t you get that mass produced?”

The thing for me is not to make as many as I can bang out – or to get some machine or automated process to make them for me. Yes, for some, that may well be a great business plan and money spinner. It’s just not for me.

I am a designer-maker creating jewellery where each piece is one of a kind – hand made, unique designs.

That’s what lights my fire.

Not Everyone’s a Pyromaniac

I know my jewellery’s not for everyone – and that’s the point.

What I offer is specialist compass creations for people who are choosing, changing or re-discovering their direction.

Unique jewellery creations for the individual.
