ABOUT THE MAKER
Qualified teacher and silversmith.
Jules spent the majority of her childhood playing in the local river estuary in dinghy's, yachts, rowing boats, canoes and anything else that floated! When not on the water or if the tide was out then Jules would be found on the local beaches collecting treasure or in the Blackwater Mud!
Jules worked abroad teaching watersports, travelled Europe seeking wind and waves, qualified as a teacher, spent 10 years teaching sport and outdoor education, and in her 30s began her journey into traditional silversmithing.
Jules now works full time creating jewellery as well as teaching others the art of traditional silversmithing in her home workshop in Dorset. When Jules isnt making or teaching she is still often found at the beach, in, on and near the water with her family and dogs!
Where does the seaglass come from?
Most of the seaglass used in Sea & Solders Jewellery comes from UK beaches. Some has been found on Jules' travels through Europe and Africa. However most is found on the South and South West coast where she currently spends her free time.
