Jill was brought up in the Northumbrian countryside, and natural things – flowers, birds, colour and beauty are what she likes best. Jill thinks of the things she makes as being like illustrations in metal, and she likes to have fun with colour!

Jill uses silver, brass and copper often etching it to add pattern and texture. Then shapes are cut out by hand, filed and then soldered to create the pieces, with oxidised colour added to the copper. Cleaning and polishing is the last step. Blue titanium is sometimes added as a feature. The clocks are made in a similar way, using a big torch flame for the soldering. The heat adds unpredictable colour to the metal. Because there are so many processes each piece can take a few days to make. Her clocks show animals and birds, and along with the jewellery, form an illustrated miniature world inspired by details of the natural world around us.
