Irene Blackbourn

I love working with the resistant qualities of silver, cutting, forming and texturing the material.  One of my greatest pleasures is to combine it with the finest quality pearls, particularly fresh water pearls, and semi-precious stones. I find my inspiration in the beauty of nature, my work is often characterised by the myriad of forms and patterns seen in leaves, the bark of trees and birds. All of my designs are hand crafted, sawed, drilled, polished and meticulously finished to the highest level.

I find working on commissions extremely rewarding. In close consultation with a client I will design and create a unique piece. It is a real joy to share their enthusiasm as I bring their ideas successfully to life.'
