As a child with a magpie like interest in sparkly things jeweller Janet Barber literally awoke to the desire to become a jeweller-silversmith at the age of 15. A lot of her inspiration derives from a lifelong fascination with the sheer intensity of detail to be found in nature, particularly with regards to insects, flowers and other foliage.
“I prefer to work with a client to produce something unique and personal to them but when I make my own un-commissioned pieces I tend to push the boundaries of design in some way, often beyond the commercial norms, restrictions of mass market acceptance and fashionable tastes. I see my role in life as being to share my enthusiasm for the beauty of life, to share the skills I have gained, and to pay homage in some small way to the magnificence of creation I see around me”. – Janet Barber

Then the white box … then the beautiful wooden box!!! And then …Eeeeeeeeek!!! It’s spectacular!
