About Bethan and her jewellery
Bethan was once a snotty nosed 6 year old with a pet lamb called Timothy and a pet hen called Hoppy! Spending most of her days on her grandparents farm always wearing wellies and covered in mud, helping her grandfather muck out the cow shed and round up the sheep. Every Sunday a group of about 5-6 of us went for long country side walks all wearing green wellies, which her grandmother decided to call our group 'The Green Wellie Brigade'.
Fast forward a few years, and after completing a BA(Hons) Applied Arts degree in Glyndwr University, this is the result, a unique collection of handmade jewellery made using a variety of techniques from silversmithing, wax carving and casting. Her work incorporates miniature farmyard animals and handmade oak leaf jewellery, jewellery hand made from copper, bronze, silver, gold vermeil and 9ct gold.
After years of working from her garden shed, in January 2015 she finally opened her own workshop in Glynllifon, set between the beautiful Llyn Penynsila and the historic town of Caernarfon, North Wales.
Following the birth of her 3rd child in October 2018 Bethan has relocated her workshop back to the garden where she works inbetween feeding her new born baby!
