Madeleine is an independent artist and jeweller living with her husband and two children on the beautiful North Norfolk coast, UK .
After her schooling in wild Wales she went on to study Fine Art in Norfolk, where she met her artist husband. Together they work from their shared workshop in the village of Burnham Norton overlooking the marsh.
Madeleine has been working as a jeweller for more than fifteen years, her love of drawing continues to be an integral part of her practise as a metalsmith. Her training is visible through the delicacy of her work and attention to detail she applies to each and every piece, this, combined with the time-worn patinas created through a process of salvaging and re-shaping results in unique pieces of wearable 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 celebrating its visible history.
Each and every piece of Madeleine Spencer Jewellery is made by Madeleine in her workshop.

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.
Alternatively send it to me with your return address and I will gladly polish it for you.
International buyers- Please be aware that International buyers are responsible for any customs fees.
