Malachite Ring and Azurite Earrings

Welcome to The Silver Forge, where you can shop for unique sterling silver and gemstone jewellery; earrings, rings and pendants; all handcrafted by me in my studio in Brisbane, Australia; and mailed out to you world-wide.

All my jewellery is made by hand using traditional methods and tools, and my pieces are limited edition or one of a kind. I believe in leaving the smallest eco-footprint possible on our earth, so I’m pleased to say the silver I use is sourced from an eco-friendly manufacturer.

My passion is making well-designed, comfortable, fun jewellery for people to enjoy every day. I believe in giving back to the world, so 10% of all sales this month will be donated to The Ocean Cleanup.

I am happy to consider requests for custom orders. At this time I am creating rings and pendants – you can choose your own gemstone from my extensive gemstone collection. You can also view some of my past custom creations in my custom gallery.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
