About me


  
Hello and welcome to Denalis.

I'm Denise and have been making jewellery and greetings cards since 2014 in my tiny box room workshop in Ealing, London.

I am proud to be member of the National Association of Jewellers. Every NAJ member is required to abide by the NAJ's Code of Conduct based on honesty, integrity and professionalism. The grant of arms gives customers peace of mind that they are dealing with a jewellery business they can trust.




I am also a member of The Guild of Jewellery Designers.

I love silver and have been working with precious metal clay since completing courses at The London Jewellery School in Hatton Garden a few years ago.

Silver precious clay is a very versatile, non toxic, zero waste material. It's made from extremely fine particles of silver, a by-product of manufacturing processes, mixed with an organic plant-based binder and water. 

Each piece I make goes through the same process - rolling, adding texture, shaping, drying, sanding, firing and finally polishing. During firing the binder burns away and the metal particles come together - this process is called sintering - leaving a beautiful and unique piece of hallmark quality solid silver.

Here's a short video showing how I make a pair of my teardrop earrings:






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.
