made by Rose

category: Jewellery and Silverware   Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: North West   

I create jewellery with a playful feel that is a pleasure to wear and own, finding inspiration in the things I love to collect, vintage fabrics, buttons and natural forms collected on walks near my home. I studied Jewellery Design and Making BA Hons at Buckinghamshire Chilterns University, graduating in 2007. Since then I have been producing my jewellery and sell through galleries and individual boutiques.
My collection includes charm bracelets, earrings and necklaces, each one slightly different due to the hand made elements and precious vintage buttons that are in limited supply. I first crochet, knot or plait natural hemp/cotton cord to form the base for my pieces. Using copper and silver wire, I create planished charms in a variety of organic shapes, some oxidised. Vintage buttons and beads along with etched wooden veneer charms that feature my own intricate organic designs complete the pieces.

region: South West   

We are two sisters with a shared love of sewing and making things that goes right back to our childhood. We are inspired by our love of recycling, junk shop hunting and our passion for sewing. We love the idea that we are making something beautiful from discarded materials. We create cushions, soft toys and accessories to our own original design. We like to think that our work is traditional with a quirky, modern edge to it. Apart from an A level in Art we are entirely self taught but are carrying on a strong family tradition of making. Our unique ‘signature’ is the use of recycled woolen blankets which we then embroider onto.We think our work is fun; it makes people smile. Most of our products are limited editions mostly due to the recycled material of the materials used.

Magpie Chique hand makes beautiful and unique silver and gold jewellery, silver spoons, costume jewellery and fascinators in stunning Shropshire.
Magpie Chique’s creator, Liz Simmons’s inspiration comes primarily from nature in form and textures.

Magpie Maison

category: Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: North East   

I make a variety of small artworks, homewares and wearable items from recycled, vintage and discarded materials.
I studied Jewellery & Silversmithing at Glasgow School of Art, where I became interested in working with mixed materials. I am most inspired by nature, fairytales and antiquity, creating one-off or limited quantity collages, which are box framed. Other works include textile jewellery, framed textile collages, and handmade cards. I have a studio/shop in Durham city.
I try to reuse as many old objects and materials as possible, sourcing from antique fairs, markets and thrift shops. Old cutlery boxes, vintage textiles, scrap papers, old books, broken jewellery and haberdashers’ materials are some the treasures I enjoy working with.

Mandi Baykaa-Murray

category: Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: South West   

My craft is painting birds of prey (my inspiration) on to feathers and small slices of tree branch. I use acrylic paints over a light layer of gesso, and a very light touch with a paintbrush. My feathers are presented either in a small ceramic vase made locally or in a specially made box frame. I display the wooden ovals on miniature easels.
I have a Fine Art Degree and an MA in Printmaking but I currently enjoy painting wildlife using a variety of media. I help at a falconry centre where my inspiration and fascination with feathers comes from to create my art.

Mark Cooke

category: Stone   

region: Wales   

Originally with a background in decorating my interest in interiors and design has developed rapidly in recent years. In particular I wanted to see how stone could be used to make discrete or statement features, wall pieces, free standing objects and even items for personal adornment.
My design ideas come from geological structures, a minimalist design ethos and unplanned inspiration. I also want to bring to eye level the beauty and textures inherent in Welsh slate, a material so often used for flooring etc. The ability to cleave or split slate expanded the versatility of this sexy lithified mudstone. Other working methods revolve around wet cutting and finishing.
I also have a new range of elegant and beautiful slate jewelry in the form of pendants which are suitable for both sexes.
