- 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.

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.
