Welcome to my busy garden stiudio in Kent. Over the past few years I've worked hard to create my small business - aiming to offer something unique, personal and very individual. Each piece of jewellery is made by me, working in a small scale, non-mechanical way, creating and finishing jewellery by hand. This means that every piece is slightly different and has a character of its own. Just like the people who wear it.
I make a range of jewellery collections, from peapods to lace hearts and happily take on commissioned pieces. Arranging a visit to my studio is always welcomed. I usually work with my dog, Alan, for company, and have some fantastic friends and family who I bribe to come in and help at busy times. The studio is a happy and creative space, music is always on, the tea flows freely - and I know just how lucky I am to work like this.
And why 'muriel & lily'? I named my business after two great aunts from childhood to mark my own circle of life and happy return to my creative roots. It just felt right.
