Worm Child Jewellery is the creation of British designer and silversmith Amy Victoria Telford.
After graduating from Nottingham Trent University in 2013 with a degree in Fine Art, Amy moved to Thailand, where she learned the art of silversmithing and developed the skills that would later form the foundations of her collections.
Worm Child Jewellery was launched in March 2014 with the aim of creating authentic, handcrafted sterling silver jewellery.
Worm Child offers an alternative style of jewellery that draws inspiration from nature and the world in which we live, creating unique pieces from unusual items such as fox claws and sharks teeth.
If you're looking for unique, quirky hand made jewellery, look no further than Worm Child Jewellery.
All jewellery is handmade in the UK.
All jewellery that requires hallmarking is hallmarked at the London Assay Office.
A bit about how Worm Child Jewellery is made....
Amy's inspiration comes from the beauty of nature. She is often collecting natural forms that grab her attention, whether it's for their texture, shape or simply because she likes the look of something. Once Amy has an idea for a collection she gathers together all her findings and starts sketching out ideas. Once she knows which natural forms she is going to use, she adds brass sprues to the objects and creates silicone moulds. The mould is then injected with wax and then the wax is cast in sterling silver or bronze using the method of lost wax casting.
Once Amy has the castings the process isn't over. She then has to clean them up and solder rings onto to them to make pendants, charms, earrings etc. Amy is seen below preparing silver wire and then attaching acorns to make the 'Acorn Cuff'.
