We are sad that we can’t welcome you at our studios at the Edith Road Workshops this year but you can find more work on my website at
We will look forward to seeing you all again soon. Take care and keep well.
Valerie designs and makes a range of contemporary jewellery in silver and coloured golds. Her designs have simple clean cut lines and are inspired by an interest in architecture and man-made artefacts and more lately the sea. She makes easily wearable pieces in lightly textured silver often with delicate details in rose gold. She works the surface of the silver with indented lines and marks, and makes tiny gold rivets to add a colour contrast. Valerie also makes wedding rings.
She has a degree from Sheffield Poly School of Art and Design, and a Goldsmiths’ Company Graduate apprenticeship, and was jeweller-in-residence at South Hill Park Arts Centre in Berkshire.
She currently works in a former punt-builders workshop in Oxford alongside other artists and craftsmen. She exhibits and sells her work around the UK and has taken part in the Goldsmiths’ Fair, Dazzle and Art in Action. Her work is in various collections including Green College Oxford, Sheffield Assay Office and National Museum of Scotland.
Valerie teaches part time adult jewellery courses at the City of Oxford College.
