Hello and welcome to Denalis Jewellery.
I'm Denise and have been making jewellery since 2014 in my tiny box room workshop in Ealing, London.
I love silver and have been hooked on working with precious metal clay since completing courses at The London Jewellery School a couple of years ago.
Silver precious clay is a very versatile, zero waste material. It's made from extremely fine particles of silver, a by-product of manufacturing processes, mixed with organic binders and water.
Each piece I make goes through the same process - roll, texture, shape, dry, sand, fire to burn off the binder and polish - leaving a beautiful and unique piece of assay quality solid silver.
Working with silver clay has endless design possibilities and much of my inspiration comes from my garden, the wider environment and works of art. I use a mixture of proprietary texture sheets and metal stamps as well as leaves, feathers, lace, fabrics and textured wall coverings to create the backgrounds to my designs.
All pieces are individually handcrafted so no two items are identical, although styles can be similar.
Any pieces weighing over 7.78g will be hallmarked. The chains and ear wires are sterling silver and stamped 925 by the manufacturer.
I also handmake sterling silver jewellery, some pieces incorporating semi precious stones or Swarovski crystal beads.
I'm very happy to accept commissions - do contact me and we can talk!
