Individual | Contemporary | Handcrafted
Welcome and thank you for visiting the Ravello Jewellery website, where you are invited to explore my range of jewellery, handcrafted in my workshop on the edge of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds. I love to work with beads, silver and copper – together and separately – so you will find a unique range of jewellery, from casual pieces for every day to elegant items for that special occasion.
In my bead creations, I use mainly Swarovski Crystals and Czech and Japanese glass beads, because of their consistent quality, but I also like to incorporate more unusual beads and pendants, whether to create a focal point or simply complement the overall design. There are so many beautiful beads to inspire a whole range of jewellery styles! Metal components are carefully chosen to complement the beads, the current emphasis being on silver, antique silver and antique copper. Most of the silver used in these ‘costume’ items is silver plated.
The pieces in my silver range are formed from sterling silver, using traditional silversmithing tools and techniques. Each piece is individually handmade and, therefore, unique. All silver items weighing over 7.78 grams are hallmarked at the London Assay Office. Where beads or stones are an integral part of the design, these are either Swarovski Crystal beads or pearls, David Christensen cane glass beads, semi-precious stones or freshwater pearls.
