So I've had a busy BUT exciting last week with finally getting my design sorted for British Silver Week, ordering the silver (£726 oh my...), doing a 2 day master class with Jaqueline Mina, designing, designing, designing...piercing to my hearts content :) and winning a private competition hosted for the Bishopsland gang to win £350 for gold, judged by Jacqueline Mina.
Here are some of my fellows hard at work :), to the left Ela Banach and to the right James Hughes.
Below is the design (in card), for my silver bowl that I'm going to be starting as soon as my saw blades and new drill bits arrive from cooksons :) CANNOT ACTUALLY WAIT!!!!
Better go and have a munch before I'm off to help at Adam Jacobs, a small exhibition that the rest of the gang will be exhibiting in and myself doing a demonstration of my piercing technique.

- Hi, I'm Kellie, a designer, silversmith and Jeweller. I recently completed a postgrad at Bishopsland Educational Trust in Jewellery, Silversmithing and Business Management in the August 2011. Along side my postgraduate course I ran my own bespoke jewellery design business, designing and making jewellery for my client base, as well as making larger sculptural pieces, commissioned for Brittish Silver week 2011. I've been incredibly lucky in having been tutored by the likes of Malcolm Appleby, Rod Kelly, Jacqueline Mina, Angela Cork and John Bartholomew. My work is all about hand piercing!!! I use a traditional decorative technique used mainly for its aesthetic appeal and create it into a structure.

Commissions from £80 to £4,000 +. I'm very flexible and aim to make work that is affordable for any budget.
