Christine Povey's Bio

I have been making jewellery for over 15 years, showing my work in galleries all over the country.

I cut, shape and drill semi-precious stones and local beach pebbles for beads. The decoration is hammered in using tools that I make myself, which makes each piece very individual. I also like to leave an unpolished finish, with hammer marks as surface decoration.

Occasionally I use 18ct gold to make hollow beads and decorate bangles and earrings.

I am currently working on some designs for brooches.
