one-of-a-kind handmade glass beads and bespoke silver jewellery by Chellie Purnell
Here are some examples of different bits of commission work I have done...
Sterling Silver Leaf Ring
This ring was made with a lady with Canadian connections and therefore the maple leaf design emerged. It has five little maple leaves cascading all around it that were meticulously cut, filed, attached to the branch like structure of the ring. Then it was finished and polished by hand.
Reptile Inspired Charm Bead Set
These beads were made for a special lady with a passion for her reptiles. I used pictures to match their colouring and texture. Read more about this project in the blog section. Just click on this picture to go straight to it...
Sterling Silver Flower Designs
Flowers are real favourites of mine to make. This one is part of a pendant and earring set. The pieces are individually made by hand from sterling silver sheet metal
Sterling Silver Sculpted Ring
This special ring was made for a special lady. it has a sinuous snake running all the way round it's delicate mesh like structure. Lots of detail makes it an eye catching piece.
Pictured here is a pendant and charm bead set all made with cremation ash.

Sterling Silver Leaf Scarf Toggle
I love using nature as inspiration and seeing how much of the life of a thing I can breathe into a chunk of inanimate silver.

Tortoiseshell Cat Beads
My challenge here was to replicate the look and texture of tortoiseshell cat fur. But not just any tortoiseshell cat; a very special tortoiseshell cat called ‘Missy’.
