category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Wales   

I design and make jewellery in my tiny studio in Colwinston, South Wales. Working predominantly in silver, printed papers and resin, every piece of jewellery is individually hand crafted and therefore unique. Sterling silver is formed using traditional silversmithing techniques. Paper is refound, drawn, or block printed on before being set into the silver jewellery […]

Clare Hillerby Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: North West   

Handwriting forms the starting point in my work. Postcards featuring handwritten messages from unknown characters are sourced to begin my process; I also search for old stamps and linen maps that have become separated from their original families ties and could otherwise be discarded as worthless.

Interesting sections are extracted from the found ephemera and combined with new handmade metalwork inspired by markings in our urban environment. The fragmented handwriting appears as pattern with intriguing hints of the original messages. By combining and layering contrasting handwriting, with stamps and maps and new metalwork, I create new contemporary stories to translate by the wearer.

Silver is oxidised to highlight the ephemera and gold tube rivets are used to construct parts of the work. Old wooden rulers are also scattered amongst the pieces.

Dani Crompton Designs

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South East   

I observe the natural world as a whole and on a microscopic level. In my Nature’s Way jewellery collection I predominantly use silver and glass seed beads sometimes incorporating paper and textiles to represent the organic forms, textures and amazing colours I find. I start with only a vague idea, no drawings or measurement. Once the materials start to come together, they steer me towards the final design, each one interacting with the last to guide me to the next move. It’s an exciting organic process which comes to its natural end when the completed piece reveals itself.

Diane Griffin

category: Ceramics   Jewellery and Silverware   

region: East Midlands   

After discovering a love for clay at an early age, I went on to study Ceramics at degree level and have been working with ceramics ever since. When designing a new piece I begin with the form and often look at sculptures for inspiration.  Anish Kapoor, Jim Partridge, Andy Goldsworthy and Gordon Baldwin are just a few of that artists that I enjoy and who continue to inspire my own sculptural forms.

I use a combination of techniques to create my pieces. My vases are slip cast then individual scrolls are rolled and applied creating a decorative and practical focus for each piece. I use white earthenware clay fired to 1150ºC which achieves a clean white finish allowing a crisp contrast to the bright colours on the insides of the scrolls.

I am currently working on pieces that translate many of the techniques that I have developed over the years for my sculptures into pieces that can more readily be incorporated into the home and I also have a collection of ceramic jewellery.

Dittany Rose

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South East   

I’m a second career maker who returned to jewellery design in 2015, twenty years after graduating from Middlesex University. I make contemporary jewellery in bright colours, working in silver, layered coloured card and clear resin. I aim to create pieces that are light, fresh and easy to wear; geometric shapes that add a pop of colour to an outfit; abstract forms without austerity, clean lines but with subtlety and detail. In 2017 I had a 12-week slot as one of the featured jewellers in the foyer of the Hepworth Wakefield. When you buy a piece of Dittany Rose jewellery you are getting a piece of wearable artwork.

Eleanor Patton Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Scotland   

Eleanor Kerr-Patton is changing how we discuss mental illness through introspective kintsugi jewellery, created using ethically sourced materials. Recycled sterling silver encases shattered mirror, bonded by seams of golden dust. Signs of past damage become something to be admired and celebrated. In the tradition of Kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing pottery with lacquer and gold dust, she endeavours to show the beauty of damaged things. The philosophy of Kintsugi – knowing that something is more beautiful for having been broken – treats damage and repair as part of the history of the object, rather than something to disguise. Each piece of jewellery is an outwardly visible representation of a journey often invisible to others.
