About The Silver Duck

For Charlotte, it all started when she was given a wire jewellery making kit as a gift. She was already interested in art and design but after creating those jewellery pieces she decided to study for her degree in silversmithing, metalwork and jewellery. Charlotte now makes her work out of her Old Market Manor studio, a space she shares with other creatives from jewellery makers to woodworkers. She's passionate about sharing her craft and giving people a glimpse of the techniques and the time it takes to work with silver. Charlotte’s aim with all her experiences is to allow people to be creative, have fun and go away with a piece they’ll be proud of.
