A little bit about me....

Well, it all started at nightschool.  I've always been creative, I like drawing, painting, sketchbooks, I even had a stint making clothes (I have a HND don't you know), but it was definitely the silver that got me.  

After spending one summer in the very lovely St Ives (I had an IT job where I worked term time only), surrounded by lots of creativity and beautiful jewellery shops, I came home and applied for a Degree in Applied Arts in Jewellery and Metalwork.  I was accepted!  In the space of a week, I'd resigned from work, found a part time job and started at Uni, all very exciting.  I spent 4 lovely years at North Wales School of Art and enjoyed every minute of it.  Half way through I started my business as part of the Professional Practice Modules.  Silver Kitsune was born.  I chose to have a name for my business because I was still at Uni and it gave me the choice to change it once I'd finished, if I wanted too.  Kitsune was suggested by a friend, because it's the japanese word for fox (well, there's a bit more to it than that, a folk tale in fact).  That was in 2007.  Since then, I have exhibited in some fantastic galleries and prestigious craft fairs.  I even went back to nightschool, but this time to teach.  I really enjoyed teaching and plan to go back to it one day, when I have a bigger workshop.

Please feel free to drop me a message, whether it's about an idea you have for a piece of jewellery, or teaching, or just to say hello, it would be lovely to hear from you.
