Our brand, our story…
Created in 2005, the business started as fun thing to do whilst the children were young. In the early years we worked mainly with freshwater pearls and semi-precious stones so we called ourselves Baroque Designs as a clear reflection of our style.
As the years moved on so did the ideas. As we love silver, we decided to retrain. Expert tuition followed, we enjoyed learning new techniques and gradually acquired the skills and tools to grow our workshops at home.
We soon realised that a new name was needed to be more in keeping with our increasingly contemporary designs. After much deliberation we chose Darcy & Wolf - Darcy from Sue's puppy and Wolf from a Portuguese name in Liz's family.
In 2022 Sue decided to reduce her active daily involvement in the business, but is still very much there to support Liz in a myriad of ways.
These days Liz loves working with a variety of materials including silver, crystal, glass, pearl and ceramic. Since we make to order, anything in silver can also be commissioned in gold, platinum, copper, bronze or other metal.
Inspiration still comes from many sources: a trip to the beach, a walk in the woods, a darkening sky or the rolling hills of the moors and dales. As a result, natural organic shapes and animal themes are a regular feature of our work.
Thank you for taking time to read our story. Whether you are treating yourself or someone else, we hope our work brings years of enjoyment.
