About Me

I fell in love with designing and making jewellery over 30 years ago, when my granny, Jose, first taught me to string beads on treasured family visits to my grandparents’ home in Kent. My flower logo is dedicated to Jose, and is based on a silver brooch that I made for her many years ago - one of the first silver pieces I ever made.

I learnt the basics of jewellery making at an evening class in my home town of Derby, but am largely self-taught since then.  Now living and working in Newmarket, Suffolk, I work mainly in silver and use hammering, texturing and forging techniques to create simple, modern pieces.  Many of the beads and gemstones I use were inherited from Jose and her father, who worked as a gemstone importer on Bond Street, London.
 

I also work to commission, creating bespoke pieces for clients, and I carry out re-stringing and repair work.  For more information about these services please visit my commissions and re-stringing pages.

As well as my online shop I regularly exhibit at craft fairs and markets.  Please visit my Facebook and Instagram pages for more details, email me at info@jennysouthgate.co.uk, or contact me.

When I’m not in my workshop, the outdoors is my happy place. I love to be out running or walking through the Suffolk fields with my beloved dog, Bonnie; looking after my chickens, or just generally pottering around in the garden.

Thank you for supporting me, and I hope you enjoy wearing your jewellery as much as I enjoy making it.
