Jane Lindsey

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Scotland   

In 2000 Jane Lindsey left her office job as Curator of British Art at the University of Glasgow, moved to a small holding near Loch Lomond and began to create textiles based on life around her. Her studio is a 1970s silver airstream caravan, parked in the middle of her cut flower garden.
Jane uses freehand machine embroidery, along with recycled fabrics and Yorkshire wool, to make quirky and contemporary badges, mirrors, notebooks and cushions. Each item is individually embroidered by Jane and no two are ever exactly alike. Her use of line is influenced by her study of prints, particularly of the early to mid C20th, her subject matter by the animals, plants and vintage vehicles that surround her.
When she is not sewing or gardening she spends time getting away to the west coast of Scotland with her family in Dougal the bright orange VW campervan.

Jane Macintosh

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: London   

All my jewellery is individually made using traditional goldsmithing techniques. I work principally with silver and 18ct gold which I often combine to give subtle contrasts of tone and colour, sometimes oxidising the silver for a stronger contrast. I also seek out beautiful and unusual stones in their natural forms to create unique pieces of jewellery which are sculptural objects in themselves. Inspired by the Bauhaus movement and by the urban landscape in which I live and work, my minimalist designs are made with close attention to detail.

Jane Sleator

category: Ceramics   

region: South East   

Stoneware ceramics, hand thrown on the wheel and shaped to produce unique, decorative as well as functional pieces.
My work explores the contrasts between rough and smooth, natural and man-made, as each piece is individually decorated inspired by the intricate designs found in wood bark.

Janet Downes

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South West   

I make jewellery mainly using silver sheet and wire in a variety of techniques. I also use PMC to make pure silver chip beads which I incorporate into jewellery made with semi-precious chip beads.
I started with courses at the Mid Cornwall School of Jewellery where I had a lot of fun and learned the basics. I gradually collected my own tools and have recently acquired my own workshop at home where I enjoy experimenting to see what will work. I find it inspirational to be able to live and work amongst the hills, beaches, seas and skies of Cornwall.

Janet Wass

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Yorkshire   

I design and make jewellery, elegantly combining and contrasting silver with acrylic.
Having originally completed a degree in photography before gaining my MA in Metalwork and Jewellery at Sheffield Hallam University, I am keen to combine these interests within my work. I am inspired by the everyday: highlighting the detail and beauty of objects we often visually ignore through photograms. These images and patterns are transferred onto the surfaces of the silver and acrylic using photo-etching and laser-engraving.
I use the organic nature of the patterns derived from photograms as contrast to the clean regular shapes of my jewellery to create interest and elegance. All my work is polished by hand, including pieces that are laser-cut to ensure a high quality and consistent finish.

Janine Partington

category: Glass   

region: South West   

Janine Partington is a designer-maker based in Bristol who combines the traditional craft of enamelling with fresh, clean, contemporary design to create framed panels, jewellery and sculptures.
Enamelling is the art of fusing glass onto metal. Janine creates intricate hand-cut stencils which she then lays on to copper. Her stencils are in the main inspired by trees, flowers, seedheads and the natural landscape. After sifting the powdered enamel over the stencil, Janine fires the piece at a high temperature in a kiln. This process is repeated many times until the work is finished. No two pieces are identical due to the nature of the process.

JEMS Jewellery by Emma.M.Swailes

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: North East   

Throughout Emma’s life jewellery had always been of great importance, whether to make or wear, it was her identity. In 2009 Emma enrolled for Metalwork & Jewellery at Sheffield Hallam, graduating in 2012. Armed with only a piercing saw, many broken blades and some scrap metal, Emma set up JEMS: Jewellery by Emma.M.Swailes working from her basement in Leeds.
JEMS is a jewellery design business creating narrative fun precious objects and silver jewellery inspired by one of her most treasured possessions; her memories. The childhood trips to the coast, and the junk she would bring back with her simply as a memory aid.
“Every day I look at photos or hold the many pebbles scattered around the house that I brought back from the coast.”
The act of reminiscing is such a personal one, and to remember the days gone by helps me develop my future, it seems so ironic. To be so attached to an object simply for memory’s sake is something truly human and to be able to design and make these pieces is an honour. Commissions are welcomed so feel free to get in touch. emma@jewellerybyems.co.uk
