Welcome to Wild Acre - contemporary, handmade jewellery by Belinda Norrington. I am delighted you visited!
I am inspired first and foremost by the natural world around me; the flowers and trees in my garden, the river that meanders behind my house, and the sea. The English landscape, particularly around the barn we live in, is my constant source of creative energy. My pieces lean towards the organic and tactile in style and are designed to combine elegance and simplicity. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any questions. Since I handmake each piece, please expect a 2-4 week fabrication, hallmarking and shipping period unless I have more than one in stock.
I am currently moving my supply-lines and studio practice to a more sustainable, environmentally-friendly model. To this end I have replaced most toxic chemicals in my studio with natural alternatives, use recycled packaging and upcycled display materials as much as I can. I now use 100% recycled silver and gold for the vast majority of my work - except for certain chains and small findings which are not available. I am increasingly able to source stones from mines which treat the local environment and the health and wellbeing of the miners with the respect they deserve. I am delighted to now be a Fairtrade Foundation registered licensee and will shortly be debuting a small collection of Fairtrade Gold jewellery.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any enquiries or commission requests, I would be delighted to hear from you. Email via the contact form or call me on: 07780771362
