We are Andy and Anne - and we are Woodland Gems UK
We are a couple of self employed artists working to create a range of hand made copper, bronze, silver and gemstone jewellery. We take inspiration from nature and mythology.
After many years as colleagues we got together over a shared love of crafts and gemstones and decided to design and make our own jewellery.
We spent over a year learning some of the skills needed to do this and sourcing both the equipment and the raw materials. We still have plenty to learn!
We have created and developed our own "Umha" copper and a range of bright bronze clays from scratch .. using fine metal powders and organic binding agents - and we use these in our Bronze and Copper products. For our white and pale bronze products we source and incorporate other clays. We create, kiln fire and hand finish our own unique pieces at our homes here in Leicestershire and Rutland
We also use a range of fine genuine precious and semi-precious gemstones, minerals and semi-precious beads from around the world to create our own pendants and bracelets.
