Phoenix-Tree Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: West Midlands   

My work blends innovative design with classic style to provide unusual creative pieces of high quality silver and gold jewellery. Inspired particularly by wildlife, animals and trees, my work is all about the detail, incorporating intricate saw piercing with form and movement to make tactile pieces with hidden details. I love problem solving to achieve a piece that reflects what I can see in my mind’s eye. My pieces vary in size from small designs to large statement pieces and I am open to commissions.

Polyanna designs

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: North West   

Polyanna Designs was founded in 2007 in North Wales. I’m self-taught and I design and create very feminine original pieces of jewellery made from sterling silver, semi precious gemstones and Swarovski crystals. I believe my designs are unique. My main collection is made using Swarovski Elements, a synonym of quality and luxury.

Whilst doing my Master’s degree in Finance and Banking I was gaining experience in fashion design. It was then that I discovered a greater passion for jewellery making, which started through my never ending wish to change things that I see. This made me think “why don’t I just make exactly what I want?”

category: Enamel   Jewellery and Silverware   

region: East Midlands   

Over the past couple of years my jewellery work has explored the technique of drawing on enamel. I was taught enamelling at college and took a dislike to it, something to do with the bright colours! It was therefore a conscious decision when I revisited enamelling that I would eliminate colour altogether and just explore […]

Rachel Codd

category: Ceramics   Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Wales   

Rachel Codd is inspired by classical poems and fairy tales, creating tactile and wearable porcelain jewellery with a deeper meaning and story to each and every piece.
Passionate about drawing a little bit of fantasy from our classical inspirations and into each piece through the ornate detail and unusual nature of this practice.
Working with porcelain to create a rich palette whilst still obtaining vivid detail. Clear glazed for tactile functional pieces, and finished with a dash of gold lustre; that holds a subtle hint of more traditional jewellery within a fresh creative process.
Our jewellery is the result of a desire to dedicatedly hand-made pieces that form a tactile narrative, adding a little more beauty into the world and inviting us to not just view it but also wear it and become a part of it.

Rachel Darbourne

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South West   

Rachel graduated from Middlesex University in 1994 with a BA Hons in Jewellery. Students at Middlesex were actively encouraged to experiment with unusual materials and ideas within their work and Rachel was, and still is, driven by the desire to reclaim and use a much undervalued material. She views polythene as a ‘fabric’ and whilst on her degree developed a folding technique which turns this two-dimensional, slippery, colourful material into objects that are three-dimensional, intricate and robust.

Her approach combines elements of both jewellery and textiles, creating highly wearable, tactile pieces that are distinctive, eye-catching and yet address contemporary issues of consumerism and how we assign value to the things we use and wear.
