About Shalini Austin

I am a self taught metalsmith and I make Copper Things. Originally from New Delhi, India I now live in Stamford, Lincolnshire with my husband and 2 rescue dogs. It started as a hobby in 2008, making wire jewellery. As I progressed on my creative journey I learnt to appreciate sheet metal, especially copper. So it is only natural that my work is now taking a new path in fabricating metal. Since Summer 2014 I have been working mainly with sheet copper, crafting a decorative and functional range of copper jewellery, home-ware and sculptures.  I love working with sheet metal and creating interesting 3D forms and shapes, often using nothing more than a simple hammer to create textures. Recently I have also started kiln fired enamelling, which has proven very popular, especially with jewellery customers.

Upcycled Copper Pipe Cuff FANTASY | Made to Order

Waste Not Want Not series: Metal salvaged from an old copper pipe.

Wide Copper Cuff Bracelet FANTASY made from copper pipe. Each wearable copper art cuff is organic, bold and a one off.

Where possible these cuffs will be made from salvaged copper pipes. I do my best to use reclaimed copper if I can. However, if I have none available then I will use new pipe. I will always tell you if your bespoke piece was made from upcycled or new material.
