I hate running so why am I running a half marathon? September 23 2018

Self proclaimed non runners run a half marathon to raises funds for Raise Africa Uk to help vulnerable children in Tanzania go to school.

Art, sculpture, jewellery and cake September 21 2018

The Art4Africa 2018 exhibition  was a tremendous success raising funds to enable vulnerable children inTanzania to have an education. There were 85 amazing artists exhibiting their work. There was paintings, sculpture, pottery and jewellery by KFD Jewellery. The Acacia tree pendant was designed specifically for Rise Africa Uk. The sale of every pendant allows one vulnerable child to go to school for one month, something that would be beyond their means without the help of the charity.

A Limited Edition for Valentines day January 30 2017

Cross Your Heart sterling silver heart pendantI am often asked for heart jewellery, but as it doesn't fit into my general theme of nature, hearts are not in my jewellery portfolio............until now that is.  I have created  a mini collection which  is a  limited edition  to include heart pendants and earrings to celebrate Valentines Day. But here's the deal.  This Valentine collection is only available until 14th February 2017 and then on the stroke of midnight , like all good fairy tales the collection will disappear from the website.

The collection is small but perfectly formed. The hearts are made from a single length of hammered sterling silver which overlap at the top of the heart to form a little 'kiss'. The pendant and earrings are beautiful on its own, but following on from the Jenyus idea you can slide on pearl drops onto both the earrings and the pendant to change the look.

Prices start from just £30.00 but  buying an earring and pendant set gets you a discount. A perfect treat for yourself or the one your love.

Made With Passion. Given with Love. Worn with Style.

What is it I do all day? January 23 2015

People often say to me "Your are so lucky! It must be lovely spending all day making jewellery". Yes I am very fortunate and I count my blessings every day. However, contrary to popular belief,  I don't just make jewellery all day. When I wanted to change from my past career, a college science lecturer,  I was lucky enough to have not only my own inner drive , but the loving support of my husband and family to enable me to follow my passion. Like any small business the thing you are known for is only a small part of the actual mechanics of the business. Admin, sales, marketing, IT, customer service and finance all still have to take place. I 'do' most of these jobs and so some days I don't get into the workshop at all. READ the full article here
