My jewellery pieces are marked with a unique code so you can trace their design back to the original leaf used in their making. A grid reference and photograph on my ‘back to its roots‘ page offers you the complete story of their creation. They are perfect example of how my Ceramics & Pottery Inspired by Nature are authentically linked to their origin.
“I was curious to know whether a Maple leaf pendant could be made as a gift for a friend with Canadian connections and made contact with Sonya. She was extremely helpful from the outset and keen to undertake the commission. We discussed all the details of the commission including the process, size, colour, style and length of chain. Sonya specified a delivery date and kept in touch throughout the process, even sending photos of the progress. I was absolutely thrilled with the results. Sonya had made two pendants so that I had a choice, but I was so delighted with them I bought both! I cannot recommend Sonya and her work highly enough, and I know my friend will be delighted with her gift”.

“Dear Sonya, just to say how delighted we are with our commissioned cactus vase. It fits really well with our home and I am going to enjoy deciding where its place should be – although I may move it around occasionally as the mood takes me! I remember you saying that each piece you make is like a ‘baby’ leaving your care, so be assured that it has a good home here and will be really appreciated. Thank you again for the emails showing the making process.”

“I first came across Sonya’s work when she was exhibiting at the Malvern flower show in the Craftsmen Guild Exhibition. Her leaf inspired ceramics are designs of absolute beauty. The colours, textures and shapes are stunningly beautiful in their reflection of nature, while also being functional. Sonya went on to make some bespoke leaf tea light holders as a commission for me which I absolutely love.”

I do love the Hanging Planter I bought at Frampton Country Fair and it looks lovely in my kitchen, so I looked up your website to purchase another. You have some wonderful designs – your leaf plates are lovely and I am sure I will be purchasing from you again”.
