Ruth Makes Jewellery 

Handmade Silver Jewellery Created in Yorkshire



Although restrictions are beginning to be lifted, we are still following our safety measures, and also still only posting out once per week, usually on a Wednesday.  However, we can still change the day to accommodate specific requirements.


As birthdays and anniversaries do arise throughout this period, online purchases are certainly an alternative option for that special gift. Please see out note below regarding our new gift voucher service. 


Keep safe!






GIFT VOUCHERS : An excellent alternative to gifting a specific item of jewellery are our Gift Vouchers. Simply drop us an email at, letting us know how much you would like to spend, details of who you'd like to receive the voucher, their address and date required, and any message you'd like adding. Payment can then be taken either through PayPal or BACS and we'll do the rest. 

Our local wildlife continues to delight and surprise us. We were watching and listening to our two local buzzards riding the thermals over the weekend. Our pond is full of frogs, newts and pond skaters, and we have seen a couple of damselflies emerging.


BBC Springwatch is in full swing, albeit in a different format this year, and I'm loving watching Chris Packham and Megan McCubbin on their daily livestream from the New Forest. All enthralling stuff.


Your continued support of small businesses is always appreciated, particularly during these testing times.


Snuggled amongst the West Yorkshire Pennine landscape, our home and surroundings provide the perfect inspiration for Ruth Makes Jewellery. My partner, Jez Coates, and I, Ruth Sutcliffe, create unique handmade silver jewellery to reflect the love we have for our local  landscape, wildlife and our own pets. Natural shape, form and drama appear in my landscape, woodland and hedgerow pieces. Jez has expanded his mythical creatures and norse themes.


New this year, Jez is recycling our off-cuts to create a collection of gents grooved jewellery. The designs use strong, simple lines which he oxidises to create a dark contrast to the satin or polished finish of the surface of the jewellery. Each design emerges organically making the creation an enjoyable process, and the final results very striking and attractive.


In fact, much of our jewellery would be suitable for both ladies and gents, and creating handmade jewellery allows us to offer an individual, personal experience which our customers find appealing in these days of mass production. So, please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have something bespoke in mind .. I am happy to provide no-obligation ideas and a quote. I will always be honest if it is not possible for us to create your request.


All our jewellery is hand sawn from sterling silver sheet, or individually hand cast using our own recycled silver, with contrasting elements of copper and brass making the occasional appearance. This ensures the individuality of each piece of jewellery.  The fascination of watching the oxidisation process during soldering never diminishes, and creates beautiful atmospheric finishes.


Where required, 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.


We hope you enjoy browsing through our handmade jewellery. We love providing a truly personal experience and meeting our customers during the year's events, so thank you! (See 'Stockists and Events')
