About the Author

Hilary Bowen was born in Dorchester, England and moved to Southampton in 1973 where she studied psychology before embarking on a career in teaching. She first started woodturning in 1991 and shortly after joined the Hampshire Woodturners Association. Hilary has a long-standing interest in jewellery-making involving a variety of media and techniques which include complex beadwork, pewter-casting and silver-smithing. It is not surprising that her interest in jewellery-making and wood-turning would lead her to combine the two, to create earrings, bangles, brooches and other similar items.
