Copper Sculptures, Gifts & Jewellery by Shalini, Handcrafted in Stamford

Shalini Austin

Hello! Lovely to see you here 🙂

I am a self taught metalsmith and I make Copper things. I hand-craft decorative copper items and metal jewellery.

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. Most of my designs are truly one-off but some things can be made to order. Read More…

Shalini Austin: Work in Progress

Currently a substantial part of my living room is my workshop.

I will be looking for a small workshop space to rent in the near future. It is not possible to carry on working from home in the long term. It all depends on what is available that I can afford.
