- Quercus Silver
- 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.

Birth of a Bangle
My carved skinny bangles were really popular last summer and I wanted to add some bigger, chunkier designs to my range.
They've taken a while to develop, so I thought I'd share a little of the process with you.
Back in April, having sketched out the shape and dimensions for my design, I made a mold from plastic - I used recycled plastic bottles - and poured a rough cast in modellers wax. Then I spent days filing and carving the wax til it was as smooth and comfortable as I could make it, leaving little trails of wax shavings wherever I had been.
