Celebrating over 25 years of designing and making contemporary jewellery for men and women.
Amanda is a jeweller with a love of architecture, photography and details in the urban landscape. She is interested in repetition, shapes, colours, forms and texture, creating a unique collection of jewellery from these observations. Work is created at the bench, also being inspired by the materials she uses in different geometric forms.
Amanda works mainly in platinum, palladium, gold and silver, precious stones and semi precious beads. She is interested in using these materials in a subtle, understated way to create work that is bold, confident and wearable.
Work is available from the collection or to commission – call 07958 415 441 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
One of Amanda's favourite things to make is a bangle, the size, the scale and the physical energy needed to make these larger jewellery items is something that she has always enjoyed.
Amanda has been making bangles in silver, gold and bi-metal for over 25 years. They are a signature part of the collection and in 2009 A&C Black asked her to write 'Bangles & Bracelets'.
Each bangle is unique, handmade by Amanda at the bench in her studio. Each design can be specially commissioned to your requirements and budget.
Amanda's rings are distinctive in that they often contain moving elements, hidden precious stones, diamonds set on the edge of the band, rings in two sections, rings inside rings, and precious stones set inside the ring itself.
Her rings are always contemporary, bold and geometric, using gold, platinum, palladium, silver, set with precious stones.
They are designed and made by Amanda herself at her studio bench.
All precious stones are responsibly sourced from reputable dealers. Each piece is hallmarked at the London Assay Office.
Amanda is also happy to discuss remodelling clients' family rings, jewellery and stones. Often reusing the metal and stones to make a contemporary piece.
Wedding, engagement, special occasion, future heirlooms, and everyday rings.
Available to commission or from the collection, not available here online as they need a personal approach to discuss sizing, or your more detailed requirements.
It's a personal and bespoke service, where a Brighton studio visit is encouraged.

We would highly recommend Amanda to anyone looking for one of a kind jewellery that you can treasure forever.' Hannah Daisy Eves
