Shalini Austin: Metalsmith

I am a Self Taught Metalsmith in the UK. I make Copper Things

Copper Sculptures, Gifts & Jewellery by Shalini

Shalini Austin Coppersmith

Hello! Thank you for visiting my website and online shop.

I hand-craft decorative copper items, metal and wire jewellery, wire sculptures and lapidary specimen.

My work is mostly inspired by nature and things I see around me. And of course by my customers who give me the encouragement to learn more, craft more and create new designs.

All my designs are created individually in my home studio in Stamford, Lincolnshire, UK. Read More
