Dale Virginia Designs came about unexpectedly after I enrolled on a six-week silver jewellery-making evening course at Quay Arts in Newport on the Isle of Wight. It sounds like a bit of a cliche but the moment I picked up a saw and a piece of silver was like a homecoming and here I am, ten years later, still designing and making jewellery with as much enthusiasm as the day I started. It helps that I am surrounded by beautiful countryside and beaches where there is plenty of inspiration to be found and most of my jewellery reflects that.
Just this year I started working with bronze as well as silver and combining the two metals is proving to be a very exciting venture and one I am finding liberating. It’s all a work in progress anyway, so keep checking back, and follow my pages on Facebook and Instagram to see where my fancy is taking me!
If you like what I do but can’t find exactly what you are looking for, I also take commissions so do get in touch for a bespoke piece made just for you.
Thank you for reading.
