Judith seeks to create elegant, feminine wire jewellery with a nostalgic feel, she likes to recycle and upcycle found objects like vintage haberdashery into contemporary jewellery.

Judith’s use of old haberdashery such as antique lace and buttons, vintage hooks, eyes and press studs is a nostalgic nod to her Mum’s old button tin that she played with as a child, and to those other women who hoarded away such treasures in the times of “make do and mend”.
