My love for collecting old trinkets began at an early age when I would spend most of my weekends at my grandparent’s classic car museum in Hebden Bridge.  


My work is inspired by this kind of nostalgia and sentimentality. I love to create pieces which will help you to commemorate the special moments in your life and the majority of my designs can be personalised with your choice of names/ dates/ words. Everything is made by my hand in my home studio in West Yorkshire.


My jewellery career began when I studied 3D Design at Manchester Metropolitan University and graduated in 2008 with First Class Honours specialising in metalwork. Now, I split my time between creating my own jewellery range and teaching small adult craft workshops.


If you would like to discuss any individual items please get in touch as I would love to hear from you.

Want to say thank you for the amazing necklace you made for mum to give me. Such a beautiful gift, I love your work! Thank you!

Having chosen to have a brooch made for my mum for Mother's Day, I had to leave you a message to thank you as we both loved the result. Again Hello Halfpenny has succeeded in making a lovely moment.

Received my beloved's 50th birthday cufflinks today, they are gorgeous and he is gonna be chuffed as mintballs!

Received my necklace in the post today and felt a little choked up.  Having my baby's name with his birth date encased in such a lovely, simple pendant felt wonderful.
