Val Muddyman - Drop pod stud earrings

Tax included.

These recycled silver drop earrings are so elegant.


Val Muddyman’s body of work entitled ‘Tidelines’ is inspired by the seaweed she collects. She captures the textures of the organic material and the resulting jewellery is delicate and beautiful. She collects seaweed from the strandline around Devil’s Point, near her studio in Royal William Yard.  This has become a key factor for change in her working practices as her environmental awareness has grown. 

 Val now works in a sustainable way using only recycled silver and her own glass ‘gems’ by reworking sea glass.  The glass had a former life, but now attains a level of preciousness and beauty - the process creating droplets of colour which are either set or cast directly into the metal.

Val works in seaweed and wax, carving and constructing before sending items off to be cast or sand-casting in the studio.  To offset any carbon footprint Val supports a local CIC, Pollenize.

Val Muddyman graduated from Plymouth College of Art in 2017.
