Helen Shere

Helen’s jewellery is inspired by illustration and is based on natural themes such as birds and trees, produced in a distinctively quirky style that is instantly recognisable.

After graduating from the University of Derby with a design degree in 2004, Helen knew that her real passion was to make jewellery and she set about learning how to do that.

From her studio in Nottingham, she works mainly in silver, with accents of copper and brass for colour and texture. Helen creates detailed patterns on the surface of the silver using techniques such as stamping and oxidising.
