Cheryl’s one-of-a-kind pieces are often designed around unusual gemstones, her handmade Roman chains and her use of gold and silver together. Another ancient technique which she incorporates into her designs is KumBoo. This is an overlay process using 24K gold to create patterns on silver.
Combining ancient techniques with her contemporary concepts, Cheryl creates an elegant piece with timeless beauty.
