Jadwiga Zaleski – designer and maker of bespoke jewellery
In 2013, I embarked on finding a way on how to crown that unique look women seek with bespoke statement pieces of jewellery. Jewellery made with large multi-colour semi-precious gemstones, freshwater pearls, sea shell pearls as well as natural materials such as crystals, lava, felt and wood. So, if you are creating a new look for yourself, aiming to be bold and different in your choice of jewellery, or simply look for that one off necklace, which will match all your holiday wardrobe, please visit my website. There you will find a number of different bespoke designs to choose from. You may come across my work in some art galleries of East Anglia as well as at craft fairs, where you would experience my designs first hand.
Born in Poland, I am a qualified primary school teacher of arts and crafts. On arriving in the UK, I had to abandon teaching in favour of the English language followed by business and finance, which filled my working life. However, on retirement, I have revived my passion for arts and crafts by attending numerous courses, workshops and exhibitions. These allowed me to profile my reborn interest in arts and crafts. Whilst the training is ongoing, I have set up a small workshop at home, where I design and make my bespoke necklaces, bracelets and earrings. I seek inspiration from the constantly evolving world around me using only natural materials.
Welcome to jadwigazaleski-jewellery.com, journey with me through my world of handmade bespoke jewellery. In the Gallery you will find examples of my unique designs. There is also a Diary of Events listing craft fairs I will be participating in, while the Glossary supplies more information about semi-precious gemstones.
At present my jewellery cannot be purchased directly from the website, but this may change in the future.
