About Sue Lane - Jewellery Maker and Designer

Sue Lane, bespoke, remodelled, modern, unique and handmade jewellery designer and makerI set up my first studio in Hereford in 2000 after graduating from Middlesex University. My aim was to make a living from designing and making contemporary jewellery that was clearly recognisable as my work. 18 years later I am living the dream, working from a studio in rural Herefordshire and doing something I love.

I have exhibited widely across the UK, and have enjoyed showing at Goldsmiths’ Fair for many years, as well as Origin at Somerset House in London, and previous to that Chelsea Craft Fair. The Hereford Contemporary Craft Fair is always one to look forward to as it is a perfect chance to meet up with customers and friends on my doorstep.

My collections are always evolving, though my trademark shapes and style are always evident. This is a natural progression, as a maker you constantly strive to improve and push the boundaries of your work and style. I often work to commission, a lovely aspect of what I do; as it is immensely personal.

In 2004 I was asked to teach jewellery workshops to community groups, and this soon developed by word of mouth; and I rapidly built a reputation for running jewellery workshops. I now offer couples the chance to come and spend a day in the workshop to make their own wedding rings. I enjoy passing on my knowledge and seeing couples leaving the studio at the end of the day delighted with the pieces of jewellery they have made for each other.

Ring sizing

Sue makes rings to the size your select when ordering. If the ring does not fit, then she will re-size the ring free of charge (once only) providing:

  1. You (the customer) pay £9 to cover Royal Mail Special Delivery costs for returning the ring to you (can be paid by cheque or back transfer).
  2. You (the customer) ensure it's returned within 14 days of delivery.

Please contact Sue before returning a ring for a re-size; it is so useful to have a discussion to help gauge how much adjustment is needed.

Please note: rings must be returned via Royal Mail Special Delivery and opting for the appropriate insurance option to cover the cost of the item. Sue Lane is not responsible for the delivery costs of returning a ring for re-sizing or for lost or damaged rings whilst in transit. For more details, please read our Returns Policy.

Sue will happily resize, refinish or repolish the ring at any time after the 14 days have expired, but at a cost based on the time needed to fulfil the work which Sue can quote before you return the ring.

Not sure of your ring size?

If you are not sure of your ring size, please contact Sue. She can arrange your order and then post out a free ring sizer to you. You then simply call or email with the measurement.
