Biography:

Kerry graduated from Liverpool Hope University with a specialism in two areas, silver and ceramics.  Her small batch designs combine both of these materials to
create sophisticated hand made products, each with a particular emphasis on items for the table and interior.

Kerry's recent inspiration stems from the sentimental side of life. Jewellery & small objects which have been passed down through the family, which are never worn or wanted but hold onto great memories of history. Using empathy Kerry takes elements from these wonderful items and capture them into a beautiful work of art. This can then be presented and enjoyed, rather than tucked away in a drawer with the constant wonder of what could be done with them.

Kerry has her workshop in the heart of the Birmingham Jewellery Quarter and clients are more than welcome to make an appointment to visit. Either to browse or to have a 'one to one' talk about the possibilities of a commission.
