About us

John & JillWe are John and Jill Davies, we live and work aboard our narrowboat, Skylark, together with our lurcher Tricky.

We met at art college in East London, John having previously studied at Carmarthen and Jill at Chelsea School of Art. John achieved 1st Class Honours for Painting and Printmaking and Jill a 2.1 in Sculpture.
We both successfully completed MA’s in our respective subjects in 1998.

We have lived and travelled extensively in South America and became increasingly interested in semi precious stones and jewellery making inspired by many of the talented artisans we met there.

We moved onto the boat after returning in 2005, and jewellery making suited the boat lifestyle being small and easily storable. We have sold at craft fairs and markets on a regular basis for the last 10 years.

We are now excited to launch a new website due to popular demand (and an internet signal !).

We hope you enjoy browsing and even ……buying here!

So, welcome aboard, we hope to hear from you soon!

With love,

John and Jill Davies x
