Kirsty Ferguson (Time & Tide Jewellery)
I am an artist and silversmith based in the Surrey Hills. Originally training in art and photography, my interest in jewellery was sparked in 2004 after taking a night class in silversmithing. Since then my passion for handmade jewellery has continued and I have experimented with various styles and techniques leading to the birth of Time and Tide Jewellery. Each piece of my jewellery is designed and handcrafted taking inspiration from the North Yorkshire coast where I grew up, and the Surrey Hills where I live and work. I am environmentally conscious and therefore my pieces are made from recycled Eco silver, the packaging I use is where possible recycled, sustainable and does not contain plastic. When not making jewellery, I am running around after my two young sons and work in a local school where I teach GCSE and A Level Photography and Art.
