Jurassic Coast Jewels

Jurassic Coast Jewels

Hello. My name is Louise Fuller and my shop is called Jurassic Coast Jewels. When I first moved to Dorset I fell in love with the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, and was fascinated by the intricate beauty of the fossils and sea glass to be found there. Each piece seemed to me to be a jewel in its own right. I started collecting, and making jewellery was a natural next step.

I use sea glass, sea pottery and fossils that I have collected from the beaches of the Jurassic Coast to make many types of jewellery, including: pendants, earrings, bracelets and rings. Ammonite and crinoid fossils and sea shells and marine creatures are recurring themes in my jewellery.

But it is not just the beach! I am also passionate about all things natural, so my ‘Silver Garden Collection’ is inspired by the botanical world and I have ranges of jewellery inspired by the iconic hare and by bees, birds and insects. 

I often work with silver metal clay – an ecological product using silver that has been recycled from the photographic and dental industries. When this is fired in the kiln, the result is beautiful solid silver, often with intricate designs. The ammonites and shells that I make are exact replicas of ones that I have found. I also use copper and bronze metal clays to develop more colourful jewellery creations.

If you love nature, the beach and the sea, take a look at my jewellery. I hope that you will find something to lift your heart and make you happy.

Please note: Because of precious metal hallmarking issues post-brexit I am no longer able to ship silver jewellery to Europe. If you are in Europe and would like to commission a piece of silver jewellery, please contact me through The British Craft House or by email: jurassiccoastjewels@gmail.com.
