About Fat Cat Silver
I love using organic material in my work, taking inspiration from the natural environment and animal world. Fine silver leaves are a staple of my collection, but I have been known to cast seed heads, feathers, petals, snake skin, dragonfly wings and even whole butterflies in silver.
When I started making jewellery I decided from the outset to use only quality materials such as sterling silver and fine silver. This meant a rather expensive hobby had to become a business, and I started selling through local market events.
I make my jewellery in my kitchen, using a simple set of tools, and fit Fat Cat Silver around my job working in a Design Technology department at a local school, and looking after my two children.
