Madeleine is an artist and jeweller living with her husband and two children on the coast in North Norfolk, UK .
After her schooling in wild Wales she went on to study Fine Art in Norfolk, where she works from her studio in the village of Burnham Norton overlooking the marsh.
Madeleine has been working as a jeweller for more than ten years.
Her training in drawing is visible in the layered marks and textures she applies to the metal, this, combined with the time-worn patinas created through a process of salvaging and re-shaping results in unique pieces of jewellery full of story telling detail.
Madeleine chooses to reuse metal wherever possible, melting down old, reclaimed silver and gold in order to make new work with a visible history.

Jewellery care- Over time silver and brass jewellery can develop a patina on the surface of the metal, this is to be welcomed as it adds to the jewellery's character! However if you wish to keep your jewellery looking as it did on arrival, avoid keeping it in the bathroom and store it in a zip lock bag as heat and moisture accelerate oxidisation. Your jewellery can be cleaned occasionally using a jewellery polishing cloth.
International buyers- Please be aware that International buyers are responsible for any customs fees.
