Alex Yule Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: London   

I draw inspiration for my jewellery from former influences & love of natural forms, inheriting my father’s interest in wild flowers and love of beach-combing rocky coastlines.

My Urchin and Mussel collections are created from tiny silver casts taken from real sea urchins and mussel shells, which I turn into delicate silver jewellery using traditional techniques, applying surface finishes such as enamel, oxidisation and gold detail. The tiny urchins in my work measure 10mm in diameter, the small mussel shells approx. 10mm in length. Pieces from my collections, range from £45- £300.

I studied at Sir John Cass and City Lit in London. In 2014 I was delighted to receive a ‘Gold Award’ in the ‘Craft & Design Selected Awards 2014’ for Jewellery & Precious Metals having received the ‘Silver Award’ in 2013.

Amy Stringer

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Yorkshire   

Architecture meets nature. Amy Stringer brings together both common and precious materials to create bold, contemporary jewellery. Amy studied a BA (Hons) Degree in Jewellery and Metalwork at Sheffield Hallam University, England, where she became inspired by the city’s combination of modern, industrial architecture and large green spaces.

Amy’s unique designs combine cement with striking silver work. Cement is found in almost every building throughout the world’s cities, but the material is often under-appreciated and its beauty can be overlooked. Within her designs, Amy sets elements of nature such as moss and lichen in the cement, forging a connection between architecture and agriculture. For her silver work, Amy takes inspiration from the steel framework and Brutalist architecture creating bold, blocked designs and contrasting these inspirations with set organic elements and soft ‘settings’ from silver sheet that appear to have naturally folded into place. Each piece of jewellery is carefully handmade in Yorkshire, and each is entirely unique.

Ancient Treasures

category: Jewellery and Silverware   Mixed Media and Recycled   Paper   

region: Midlands   

I studied textile design at the Central School of Art and Design. I was always inspired by how colours react with each other, and also loved texture, particularly in nature. Researching at the British Museum I was much taken by the ancient necklaces in the Middle Eastern section. This inspired the development of a range of necklaces, made with handmade beads. I am interested in that which is lost, obscured, veiled, from an age long ago: much of the original colour has been rubbed off in the long journey through time but flecks of gold occasionally glimmer through the dusty neutral shades. As well as developing my range, I also run bead and necklace making courses.

Anna Harding

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South West   

A maker of contemporary jewellery in sterling silver and resin, I use multiple layering techniques to suspend delicate silver elements, freshwater pearls and tiny filigree style pieces made from resin inside a handmade resin shell.

Ideas are formed around observations of the landscape and the ways in which it can mirror or influence emotion. When I see something beautiful in nature I am moved to create an impression of how it felt to be in that moment.

Using quiet colour combinations and subtle changes in texture, current pieces capture the mood of soft, reflected light diffused through clouds.

Anne V Massey

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South East   

I studied Wood, Metal, Ceramics and Plastics at Brighton. Initially I worked in mild steel which I forged and welded, but became disenchanted with this technique and the work I was producing. I took a City & Guilds course in Silversmithing, and joined Brass Monkeys studios in Hove in 2002, where I established my current business.

I am inspired by natural forms and the rhythms of the natural world, abstracted into simple, timeless forms. All my work employs the technique of anticlastic raising, performed with hammers and mallets over plastic, wood or metal formers.  It gives light, strong, sinuous forms which are deceptively easy to wear. Many individual pieces are hammer-forged before forming to introduce texture. All my jewellery is made from silver.  I feel compelled, wherever possible, to make each design from a single piece of metal. My work displays both inner and outer surfaces.

Annette Petch Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: North East   

I make intricate, delicate jewellery in silver and gold from necklaces and bracelets to earrings, cufflinks and rings. I also make tiny silver books with messages inside, little boxes to hide your secrets in, and small decorative bowls.

I create textures and forms in the metal using a technique called chasing. I am fascinated by the way the lines I chase onto one side of the metal can be altered and transformed by working from the back to form emerging three dimensional shapes.

I am influenced by the structure and texture of natural forms, such as shells, seed pods, leaves and rippled sand, and I like my jewellery to incorporate sound and movement.

Arrabella Giles Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South West   

I use traditional silversmithing techniques to create contemporary silver jewellery. I love colour and so combine clean simple forms with sea glass or anodised aluminium which I hand-dye. Where possible, I add movement to the designs.

My inspiration comes from the glorious colours and patterns that occur naturally in plants, trees and landscapes. I reflect those colours and patterns in more linear and abstract forms in the way I dye and then cut the aluminium.

Birgitte Bruun Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South East   

I make a range of Contemporary Silver Jewellery, including bangles, necklaces and earrings. From my Danish roots I am influenced by Scandinavian Design; my pieces are simple, contemporary in design, timeless and accessible to wear.

I like to produce contrasts in my work, whether by texturing, oxidising or milling the Silver. I particularly enjoy shaping the metal by forging and planishing and many of my pieces involve these techniques. I also include interesting semi-precious stones in my designs and highlights of gold. My full collection and examples of commissions can be seen on my website.

I learnt the art of Silver Jewellery making through various evening classes and City & Guild Courses. I am a member of Cambridge Open Studios and participate in July each year. Commissions welcome and my Studio can be visited throughout the year by appointment.
