Anthea has been making jewellery with precious metals for nearly 20 years. She works from her studio in York and all her pieces are crafted using traditional jewellery making and silversmithing techniques.
Anthea takes her inspiration from the rugged mountainous countryside she loves to explore, as well as from her local woodland and the bottom of her garden. Her current theme is developed around the concept of woodland peculiarities. It explores the natural woodland, concentrating on the world of toadstools and the myriad of shapes, colours and textures with which they grow. She incorporates flora and fauna into her pieces, including ferns, snails and beetles. She works predominantly in silver, with accents of copper and enamels. The pieces are often finished off with gemstones, glass or found objects.
Anthea has made a number of special commissions over the years. All her work is very personal with the design developed specifically for that individual.
