My name is Helen Baynham and ever since I can remember, I have loved silver.
I am lucky enough to now spend my days creating repurposed jewellery from antique sterling silver.
I work from my studio and shop in the beautiful Lake District.
I am especially drawn to Victorian pieces, particularly if they have a Gothic edge to them.
Silver during this period established a person's identity and status and was diverse in styles and fashions. It consisited of 3 distinct timeframes: The Romantic, The Grand and The Aesthetic periods.
Queen Victoria's regin lasted from 1837 to 1901.
Each of my creations has a lavish weight and is of notable proportions.
My jewellery is for people who like to make a statement and stand out from the crowd.
