category: Jewellery and Silverware   Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Midlands   

I create bespoke textile installations and accessories, mixing media and building up tactile delicate surfaces. I work and rework my pieces with paint, dyes, bleach and ink, burning and layering until finishing it with hand stitch. I find beauty in flaky walls, overgrown buildings and encrusted surfaces; this is something I recreate in my work. […]

I create bold textile jewellery by fusing traditional techniques with sculptural forms and contemporary colours. Combining textiles with precious metals, I explore the idea of making a two-dimensional fabric into a three-dimensional form through weaving, folding and knotting. Drawing on inspiration from cities across Europe; elements of fashion, fine art and history are referenced in […]

Clean structured shapes are amplified and embellished with texture and oxidisation to give each handcrafted piece a unique and contemporary look and feel.

Enssembly

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: North West   

I am a self-taught Jewellery maker. Enssembly is inspired by my mother who had a strong love for one-of-a-kind pieces and would always purchase from independent designers, creating a collection of the most extraordinary jewellery pieces. I have memories of when we would recycle precious beads to create beautiful necklaces. I combined this vision with my brother’s love for words and sayings, using his sayings to create a design based on how I visualised the meanings. ‘My Words are the Light between Silver and Grey’ is the first quote my brother recited to me and the first I had heard after my mother’s passing. Enssembly’s feature colours are based around this key piece.
All designs are drawn by hand and made ready for cutting using up-cycled wood. I assemble the parts, hand sand each pendant, then set the crystals individually.

Fiona Chapman

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Scotland   

My range of colourful, light-weight jewellery is made using my own technique for fusing polypropylene plastic. Exploration and experimentation are key to my development as a maker: naturally inquisitive and fascinated by materials and their properties, I am always wondering “what else can I do with this?”. I use recycled materials whenever possible, creating almost no waste, every scrap of plastic can work its way into a new piece. I like to work intuitively, with pieces evolving at the bench. I am inspired by geology and microscopic life, with light, transparency and reflection becoming increasingly important since moving to the west coast of Scotland.

Fiona West

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Midlands   

My work is inspired by contemporary Japanese architecture that is modernist and geometric in style. Fusing 3d computer technology with traditional gold-smithing skills enables me to produce geometric shapes that are hand-finished to create a range of contemporary geometric jewellery. Each piece encapsulates the simplicity of the line. Prior to my jewellery career I previously worked for 15 years in Human Resources for a major publishing company. Wanting to make use of my creative skills, I decided to embark on a career change and studied for 3 years at Buckinghamshire New University for my BA (Hons) Jewellery Degree and I graduated in 2010. Since graduating in 2010 I have established my workshop in Oxfordshire and will be showcasing my work in the Newcomer’s Gallery at this year’s British Craft Trade Festival in Harrogate.

For Your Beads Only is bold and beautiful jewellery made by Sulamith Kilian-Carter. Every piece is individually handcrafted with much thought and care. Sulamith uses a wide range of materials to create her jewellery, from colourful handmade Indian lampwork glass beads, semi-precious gemstones, natural shell and wooden beads to vintage and recycled beads and fabric to ensure a unique look and finish.
The impressions and experiences collected during her travels in South America, and her studies into different material cultures, have motivated her to become a jewellery designer and have a strong influence on her work today. Every piece has its own personality and is given a name which best reflects the inspiration drawn on and material used to make it.

Finding beauty in surfaces and objects that are blemished and imperfect, resonates […]

Frances Julie Whitelaw

region: North East   

My work is made in silver, a material that I love to use. It can be formed, polished or patterned in so many ways and complements the colours and textures next to it.

I make silver jewellery in its polished state or oxidised to create a deeply luscious dark finish and often combined with pearls. In addition to jewellery I also make silver Christmas decorations and tableware.

Hannah Coates

category: Jewellery and Silverware   Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: Wales   

I work from my home in Bethesda, North Wales surrounded by my collection of art created by friends and family, vintage treasures and charity shop finds. These are all a great source of inspiration within my jewellery making.
I have always had a fascination with colour and wanted somehow to bring it into my work. I became very conscious of the amount of colour in packaging that we simply discard and throw away, in particular the rich jewel like colours in some plastic bottles and confectionery wrappers.

Having a keen interest in re-using and recycling, I decided to utilise these materials and have since been developing my jewellery from recycled plastics, foils, semi precious stones, reclaimed beads and silver. I have been making jewellery since leaving college in 1991 and my work has been shown in many exhibitions and galleries around the UK.
