From engineering, to teaching, to silversmithing: it’s fair to say I’ve had a varied career. Some might say I can’t make my mind up what I want to do, though I’d rather say it’s because I’ve never found quite the right fit for me. Until now that is!

I came to silversmithing a little over two years ago when I was looking for a creative escape from a career that had left me deeply unhappy and more than a little broken. I was instantly hooked; the ability to take an unassuming scrap of metal and turn it into a piece of wearable art gave me immense satisfaction. I knew very quickly that I wanted this to be more than just a hobby, and my business was born.

Handmade by LollaMac Double Disc Earrings in Sterling Silver and Copper

Handmade by LollaMac is a range of contemporary jewellery, all designed and handcrafted by me using traditional silversmithing hand tools and techniques. I work with sterling silver, copper and brass, the ‘mixed-metals’ look being a signature of the brand. My style is simple, clean and minimalist. Nothing in your face, but hopefully striking nonetheless, with a cohesive collection suited to any occassion.

I have registered my maker’s mark with the London Assay office, who hallmark my work in accordance with UK legal requirements.

The LollaMac collection is currently available through a number of stockists across the North East, and online at http://www.lollamac.co.uk. I also trade at regular markets and fairs both local and further afield – check out the Upcoming Events page for details of where I’ll be.
