I’m 46 years old and live in Derbyshire with my hubby and our 2 boys.  This is us all together……

 

 

 

I’ve been making solid silver jewellery since 2013, my inspiration coming from being 40 and wanting to do ’40 things at 40′.  I made my list and on it was a little throwaway one liner ‘make some jewellery’.  I’d bought Andrew (the hubby!) a pair of fingerprint cufflinks a few years before and I though it would be great to have a go.  I spent four months researching and spending small amounts of money each month on buying supplies before finally making my first piece.

 

I then started making pieces for friends and family and it grew from there.  October 2013 saw a redundancy opportunity present itself at work which thrust me into my current world of self employment, and LillyLocket Fingerprint Jewellery was officially born on 29th January 2014.

 

In 2016, an opportunity to run a family business presented itself, so Andrew and I now run a local golf club www.barlboroughlinksgolfclub.co.uk too.  I’m still making jewellery alongside this, although I don’t actively market myself anymore.   Please do contact me if you wish to discuss an order.
