about nicholas

I grew up in Topsham, a fishing village close to Exmouth on the South Devon coast. My earliest memories are of the Estuary with its whispering mud flats and myriad birds, the sea and wonderful ever changing skies. These have been my inspiration for jewellery in 30 years of designing and making. Now I live in Ventnor on the South East coast of the isle of Wight. The town is a centre for artists in many different media including jewellery and a great place for my studio.

This is an example of my Gingko leaf inspired jewellery. Silver earrings inlaid with red gold.
