My name is Catherine Thomas and I am a Dorset-based jeweller, working from a small studio and exhibiting through various galleries and fairs

My inspiration comes from our environment (both natural and urban), and precious metals are marvellous materials which can be transformed through techniques such as etching and pressing.  It is therefore rare for my pieces not to be textured to reflect my love of both the metal and my surroundings.   

Each item is entirely handmade employing traditional jewellery bench skills.  I work largely in sterling silver, with the addition of natural semi-precious stones and highlights in gold, creating contemporary designs that are functional, easy to wear and highly individual.

Many of the items shown here are one-off pieces (particularly the rings and earrings) so please do contact me if you would like more information, or want to commission something similar.
