After graduating from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne Polytechnic with a BA Honours degree in Designer Craftsmanship, Penny began to develop an interest in pattern and its application to jewellery by making work that used patination on the surface of non-precious metals.
Penny has specialised in hand-dyed aluminium since 2001. The attraction of this material in its use for jewellery is primarily about making permanently colourful accessories without using gem stones, but it is also an incredibly light metal making it easy to wear.
The jewellery is made in anodised aluminium combined with silver. All the wires and chains are made from sterling silver.
Prices range from £20 - £90
