about marie canning
Marie Canning trained at Manchester School of Art in 2012 in ceramics and silversmithing. Shortly after this she began making jewellery and bridal accessories for her growing family of stockists. Working from her studio in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, her creations are now available at gallery shops and bridal boutiques in Britain, Europe and the US.
Marie’s jewellery and accessories are exquisitely timeless and dainty, perfect for those who love the subtle and delicate. The pieces she creates are all handmade from porcelain, a very fine and beautiful white clay. Intricate floral details are handcrafted and decorated with pastel sweeps and drops of gold. These tiny pieces are backed with precious metals which keep the porcelain safe and protected.
At the heart of Marie’s values is the desire for quality craftsmanship and a respect for nature. Each piece is handcrafted using traditional ceramic techniques. The making process is lengthy and her pieces take several days to complete. She works overlooking the Yorkshire hills, a constant source of inspiration for her.
Along with her curated collection available online and via her beautiful stockists, Marie loves to work directly with you, providing a bespoke service. Focusing on the individual, she spends time considering your ideas and how the precious porcelain can become a piece which you will always treasure.
“The orchid necklace and earrings have just arrived and are absolutely gorgeous, they are a birthday present for my sister from myself and our mum and know that she will love them. They look really pretty on your website but the detail is only apparent once you physically see them, amazingly dainty”. Laura Roberts.
“Thank you so much for all your help with my halo. I feel quite sad that it’s all packed away safely now and can’t wait for another opportunity to wear it or for it to be worn. I’ve offered it to my brother’s finance for their wedding next year in the hope that it’ll become a real family heirloom”, Nikki Simpkins.
“Marie Canning creates the most amazing and delicate hand crafted porcelain jewellery that is so stunning and so unique that we couldn’t wait to bring it to Perfect Day Bride to share with you. These pieces are simply exquisite”, Perfect Day Bridal, Wiltshire.
“Absolutely exquisite accessories for brides, created using the tiniest of porcelain roses, peonies, gypsophila and hydrangeas”, Love My Dress Bridal Blog.
My Eco Policy.
Nature provides me with my inspiration. Its only right that I respect it in the best way I can:
- I keep printing to a minimum and I use recycled material gift boxes, tissue paper and mailing boxes.
- I plan well to avoid firing the kiln unnecessarily. Its always full!
- I recycle my porcelain in a way that has no effect on the quality of the finished product.
- I only order my materials from other British companies and of these I use small independent businesses where possible.
- At home I try to be as eco friendly as possible by recycling, using public transport and taking care of how much energy I use. I buy food from local independent businesses and from organic, higher welfare farms.
