Eco-silver Collection – Izzie Roffe-Silvester
This month we’re thrilled to present the new eco-silver collection by Izzie Roffe-Silvester, and who better to tell us about than the lady herself:
‘I’m really excited to be in my studio at the moment. It’s wonderful to be looking out at the colourful trees with their leaves turning a vibrant red and I’m also feeling inspired to create new designs.
I’ve recently started working with eco-silver, an 100% recycled alternative to regular sterling silver with exactly the same properties. You’ll notice that my silver designs in the shop are hallmarked with the 925 stamp, for a guarantee of authenticity. I choose to use recycled materials in my work (where possible) without compromising on quality. This is because as a designer I’m keen to create a more positive environmental and social impact.
At the moment, I’m having fun continuing with my leaf designs whilst creating a new Reptile & Bird collection. I’ll be updating my display over the next few weeks, so do pop into shop and take a look.
These photos, taken by the lovely photographer Christine Juette, give you an insight into my studio and a sneak peek at my process of making. I tend to work very manually, sawing each piece out individually, hammering it into shape and using hand engraving as a finishing touch. This means that each piece is unique and a joy to make.’
We’re so excited to have this gorgeous new collection in the shop where it’s been getting lots of admiration this week. Which piece is your favourite?
