My name is Dawn, and  I am a designer and maker of beautiful and affordable handmade jewellery. 


Polly Red is my full time business based in the Northamptonshire countryside.

I work mostly with wire and glass beads, often incorporating precious and semi-precious stones and making use of natural materials such as linen, silk pearls, and wood.  I love to try out new materials and new techniques so I'm constantly coming up with new items to add to the range! Most of my ideas start with a sketch and a prototype just like this piece, my current best seller which is a Robin brooch.

All of the pieces on this site have been individually designed and the jewellery I sell is handmade, having been designed and assembled in my studio. 

In July 2012 one of my headpieces was featured in Vogue Magazine.

In 2012 I was chosen as one of 10 shortlisted finalists in the Jewellery Maker of the Year Competition for a piece of my wirework jewellery. In Oct 2013 I came 2nd in the British Bead Awards in the wirework Category fort my piece entitled "Fledgling".
