Further information about ordering online or current stock availability is presented towards the bottom of this page.
Things in Wood
Shown below is a selection of some of the things Richard makes in wood. Wherever possible, locally sourced and sustainable timbers are used and these are carefully selected, taking into account attractive grain patterns or woods with a rich heritage. Woods used include English oak, elm, cherry, sycamore, spalted beech and yew.
When images show multiple objects for sale, the sizes and prices are per item and act as a guide to current stock. If you are interested in a particular piece, please email Richard who will then advise you of its availability and can give you any further information you require. The prices quoted include UK delivery. International orders may incur extra postage costs and are subject to importation regulations regarding timber products for that particular country.
Crafted Wooden Jewellery
After receiving numerous requests, Richard now crafts a range of wooden jewellery, including pendants, earrings, brooches and bracelets.
Native woods are used and often includes sterling silver chains, findings and inlays. Semi precious stones are also incorporated into some pieces and designs vary from organic shapes to stylised animals. Pendants are strung with either silver chains or waxed cotton cords which are fully adjustable.
Recently, Richard has also started to use rare bog oak, using oak from trees recovered from peat bogs, some of which are over 5000 years old. This wood which is partly fossilised produces wonderfully dark brown to black pieces and has been much prized since Tudor times for luxury items, being our only native black timber.
Richard also uses olive wood from Bethlehem in The Holy Land. This beautifully grained timber, sourced sustainably, makes an attractive range of necklaces, earrings and bracelets.
Please email Richard if you are interested in a particular piece or would like to see Richard's current stock. All jewellery is reasonably priced with pieces starting from as little as fifteen pounds.
All of Richard's jewellery can be posted at cost and includes details of the wood and any provenance of the wood used.

We can arrange to post orders overseas, which may incur an additional postage fee. If you intend to purchase from outside of the UK (or prefer to use a payment method other than PayPal), please contact Richard by email, and he'll be happy to help you.
Because some of the works are glazed, they cannot be insured against breakage during transit. However, all artworks are very carefully packaged by Richard and he has not suffered any breakages of pictures to date posted worldwide. For extra peace of mind, all posted goods are tracked during transit, to their delivery destination.
There may be restrictions imposed on the ability to ship wooden items to some international locations.
Richard hopes your are very happy with the purchase of your picture. If for any reason you are not entirely satisfied, please email him.
