Copper Sculptures, Gifts & Jewellery by Shalini

Unique Copper Designs Handcrafted for YOU

Shalini Austin, Metalsmith

Hello! Thank you for visiting my website.

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…

I really love making things from salvaged metal

I strongly believe that we can all make an effort to waste as little as possible. I do try my best to find old copper that I can craft things out of. It could be an old copper tank, sink or pipes that have been salvaged from houses. As Ma says “waste not want not”. Read More…

Custom Orders for Bespoke Jewellery and Sculptures Welcome

Talk to me about your unique requirements for a special day, a significant birthday or memorable event. I firmly believe one design does NOT suit all and I will work with you, my customer, to create something unique. Read More…

All my designs are created individually in my home studio

Originally from New Delhi, India I now live in Stamford in Lincolnshire, UK with my husband & dogs. A substantial part of my living room is my workshop. Thank goodness I have an understanding husband and very chilled out doggies who accept me spreading out into their space on a regular basis!

The Online Shop features copper things by Me, Palletwood stuff by Dave Austin as well as pieces made in collaboration with various artisans. The shop is open for you to browse and buy at leisure at any time
