Hello and a very warm welcome to Ruth Makes Jewellery and our handmade silver jewellery. We're always happy to meet existing and new friends of our sterling silver wearable art creations.
Talking of meetings, we are in full preparation for our fast approaching events months: Art in the Pen at Thirsk; Summer Craft and Food Fair at Tennants Garden Rooms, Leyburn; Art in the Pen at Skipton. We're really looking forward to seeing lots of folk there. Please see links to these lovely events on the stockists and events page.
Coming soon, and due to launch at Art in the Pen, Thirsk, Jez has been creating a new range of claw and skull sterling silver jewellery. This recycled silver jewellery is still inspired by the beautiful creatures we see around us, this time by celebrating their structure. These beautiful, striking pieces are suited to both ladies and gents. After hand carving a wax form, Jez uses our silver scraps to hand cast each individual piece. These items can be hung from a choice of chains/cord.
Ruth Makes Jewellery is in fact a partnership. I'm Ruth Sutcliffe and I'm joined on a part time basis by my partner Jez Coates. We are both silversmiths located in the hills of West Yorkshire where we create individually handmade sterling silver jewellery capturing the beauty and drama of the wonderful creatures and landscape surrounding our home, including capturing antics of our own animals. Natural shape, form and drama appear in my latest range of landscape pieces. More mystical pieces are formed of moongazing hares and wolves.
Each piece of jewellery is sawn out of Sterling Silver sheet, sometimes incorporating features in copper and brass. All chains are sterling silver, predominantly 18" ball or rounded box, but also 20" or longer where more suited to the design. All sterling silver earring wires are made by us, so designs do vary to suit each design.
We haven't forgotten all you gents out there. For example, the spinning rings are very popular with gents, and Jez can make whatever size is required. If there is a particular piece of jewellery which appeals, but is the wrong size, simply drop us an email or use the contact form quoting the code number shown in the description and we will go from there.
Similarly, for ladies or gents, if any of the pendants appeal, but a cord or thicker/longer chain is preferred, then please get in touch to have a chat about your preferences.
Creating handmade jewellery allows us to offer an individual, personal experience which our customers find appealing in these days of mass production.
Commissions are welcome, so please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have something in mind .. I can provide no obligation ideas and a quote. I will always be honest if it is not possible for us to create your request.
Where appropriate our work is hallmarked at the Birmingham Assay Office using our own Ruth Makes Jewellery RS and JC laser marks.
Our jewellery is presented in matte black gift boxes made from recycled materials. The boxes are not marked so customers can re-use them to continue the recycling process.
Many thanks for visiting us here, we hope you enjoy browsing through our handmade jewellery. We love providing a truly personal experience and it would be so lovely to see you at one of our events so you can experience our creations for real (see 'Stockists and Events' above)
