Rose Wood

Rose Wood is a Jeweller from West Wales currently studying an experimental jewellery course at Middlesex University. With an insatiable appetite for creating, the nearest objects have become her art materials, inspiring a passion for recycling in her own unique way.

She now creates fun, elegant jewellery for all occasions made from sterling silver and recycled drinks cans. Her use of traditional jewellery techniques on an unlikely material results in original jewellery with a unique and fresh look.

Some of the cans come from Erwood Station's very own cafe and return to the shop transformed into teasurable pieces of jewellery.

Gareth Giddings Trading as Seren




Since starting in 1979 all our jewellery and giftware has been handmade at our workshop in Glynneath, Wales. Many of our studies are inspired by the wildlife living in the bordering Brecon

Beacons National Park, a part of the United Kingdom renowned for its wildlife, scenic walks and cascading waterfalls.

We offer what we believe are some of the most unusual and unique items of jewellery and gifts. And remain one of the few studios today producing pewter jewellery and giftware in Wales.

From the creation of the original sculpture through to the finished article involves many complex processes. The making of the original sculpture, castings of intricate detail, fettling to remove burrs, linishing, applying relief to highlight form and texture, applying acid etching, using enamel paints, soldering, making vulcanised moulds, satin finishing and polishing.

All our designs are made using

modern pewter, which conforms to British Standard 5140 and is guaranteed lead and nickel free.

Alison Summers

Alison has been making jewellery for about twenty years. However, for most of the time she had a 'proper' job and the jewellry took second place on a part-time basis; three years ago she took the leap and made jewellry her primary occupation.

She works with textures and colours, experimenting within various mediums, often combining the elements and waiting to see the results. She does not sell via the internet but only through selective Craft and Gallery outlets, as well as regional events.
