Inspired by the sea, this nautical collection beautifully captures the movement of the ocean. Growing up in a seaside town on the South coast, Barbara has drawn inspiration from the natural world to create the Wave collection. Hand forging the finest metals to create bracelets and necklaces in sterling silver, platinum, and gold.
Barbara Tipple has some of the most talented silversmith and master goldsmith in the country creating her collections. With over 40 years’ experience, these highly skilled craftsmen work closely alongside Barbara to bring her designs to life. Carving, forging, and polishing the metals into sculptural pieces of art to be worn and admired by many.
All pieces from the wave collection and hand-made using the finest quality gold, silver, and platinum. The wave necklace can be worn as a statement necklace or used as a chain to slip your choice of pendant onto. This sculpted necklace can be made in any precious metal variation. 18ct yellow gold wave segments are hand forged and joined using platinum links and vice versa. The contrast of the white and yellow metals together makes the wave necklace a truly unusual unique piece.
The wave bangle is an equally elegant and timeless piece. Handmade in gold, silver, or platinum this sculpted bracelet can be worn plain or made personal to you by setting a precious gemstone into the design. Barbara has an impressive collection of coloured gemstones and diamonds for you to choose from. Vibrant aquamarines, amethysts, and peridots are some favourites to set into this design.
Hand choosing a gemstone to be set into a handmade, bespoke design truly makes buying or gifting a piece of jewellery a special and personal experience. Once you have chosen the perfect gemstone our master goldsmith begins creating your one-off piece. The understated wave necklaces are hand-forged in silver and gold finished with a soft hammered texture to add depth and the bangles and bracelets have a high shine polished finish. A thoughtful gift for a loved one or yourself.
