A little bit about how
MaisyPlum was born.
Hello and welcome!
MaisyPlum handmade jewellery is run by me, Jo Pearce.
I make contemporary handmade enamel jewellery that incorporates beautiful colours that stand out from anything you may find on the High Street. I also enjoy making a variety of home gifts including wall hangings and enamel bowls and ring dishes.
In 2013 I discovered enamel and all the possibilities of this ancient art, that things really took off creatively. Since then I haven't looked back!
Tucked away in an East Sussex studio I have spent the last five years playing with and exploring the possibilities of colour on copper and sterling silver. The possibilities are endless and the results are so exciting when each piece emerges from the kiln.
Enamel dates all the way back to the 13th century BC and is made from finely ground glass which is melted onto metal using incredibly high temperatures. I use both a torch and a kiln with many pieces being fired up to five or six times layering different enamels in between.
MaisyPlum jewellery is made using the very best jewellery components, often incorporating sterling silver and copper in the designs. I love to experiment with form as well as material and colour and I am always thinking up new items to add to my range.
My jewellery can be bought online from the website or my Etsy shop and is also sold in various craft stores in the UK. There is also the opportunity to commission bespoke items.
