Val B's Wax Jewellery was developed in 2014 by Valerie Blount. Val has been an artist for many years and has her late mother to thank for introducing her to encaustic art. Experimenting with some of her waxes one day she tried mounting it in a copper pendant. The rest as they say is history and now Val creates her stunning pieces in her workshop in the beautiful rural market town of Bridgnorth, Shropshire. She sells much of her jewellery from a small retail outlet in a picturesque courtyard in the centre of the town. In her jewellery she captures the beauty of encaustic artwork using waxes. The images are sealed under glass which magnifies, enhances and preserves their unique quality. Val says her Mum would have really loved her jewellery and each piece is made even more special because of her story. Every piece is carefully hand-painted and packaged with love.
