“I graduated from UCA Rochester in 2012 where i studied silversmithing and jewellery. I am currently working on two collections of jewellery, The Wings collection and The Bullie for you collection
A Bullie For You Collection;
I now combine my love of jewellery making and working with silver with my love of dogs to create unique items of jewellery that stand out and act as a sort of conversation piece. I began my collection by making solely English Bull Terrier Jewellery inspired by my dog Bella but am now moving on to design and make other breeds. Most of my pieces can be customized with your pets markings and/or fully customized to resemble your pets face shape and ears etc.
Each piece is handmade with love from solid sterling silver and all of my jewellery has my trademark little hidden enameled red heart. If I haven’t made your breed of dog yet, watch this space as more breeds are on their way.
My wings collection combines my love of butterflies and jewellery. These delicate items of jewellery are made from sterling silver, silk organza and feathers. I begin by paiting each butterfly before transferring the images onto silk organza. I then carefully cut each piece out and arrange them with silver to create one of kind items of whimsical jewellery.” – Tyra Jane Ward
