Su Trindle is a British designer and maker of sculptural modern silver and resin jewellery. My favourite place to be is my small workshop in my garden. I work alone, singing along to the radio striving to create beautiful well-designed, contemporary jewellery and make a living at it. This last is important, not just to my creativity and ego but to help feed by boys and the dog.

Happy Etsy-versary

To celebrate my exciting first 2 years on Etsy, I'm offering Free Shipping worldwide across my shop, today only - Monday 22nd February.
When I set up myQuercus SIlver on Etsy, I was really nervous about the whole process. Would people like my work? Would it be a happy experience? Could I work out how to use my camera?
I shouldn't have worried. I'm glad to say Etsy has been a great move for me. I've met so many interesting and talented people, in the UK and all over the world. and honestly, it's been positive and supportive and challenging.  Most of all, I get to share the thing I love doing most. What more could a girl ask for?
Hmmmm  - apart from more shiny lovely tools.
Oh, yes. And it's snowing again in Bath.

These are pretty speedy rings and I am often surprised by the result. They seem to grow from whatever material is to hand, from a bus ticket to a pot of unset resin.
When I decide to make a ring in metal it's usually inspired by one of the quicker rings. I'm hoping to re-visit some of them and develop them further.
