Jen Lithgo

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: North East   

I make Sterling silver jewellery by hand in my home studio in Gateshead. I’m hugely inspired by nature, in particular leaves, and am about to launch a new collection, inspired by waterlilies and lily pads. I use predominantly folding, scoring and forming techniques to realise my designs, and am looking forward to incorporating textural elements using a recently procured rolling mill.

Having studied jewellery while at university, I have remained immersed in craft and design and broadened my perspectives through Jewellery Sales and more recently as an Assistant Designer in an artist studio.

Jewellery By Silvana

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: North West   

I design and make quirky, individual jewellery, using sterling silver and copper as well as incorporating enamel, glass, brass and semi-precious stones sometimes. I also use pewter for brooches, pendants and earrings as well as clocks, thermometers and tiny animal ornaments. Though I didn’t start off this way, my designs are now predominantly animal based as these have proved to be so popular, though I still do my signature gingerbreadmen and also the more elegant ranges that I started my career with a decade ago.
My prices range from £12 up to £35 at the moment. Based in my home studio in Ashton-in-Makerfield, Lancashire, I have been studying, making and selling jewellery for 10 years but turned full-time only very recently.

I am a trained silversmith who works mainly with silver but I have recently incorporated seaglass found on Dorset beaches into many of my pieces.
I love texture and my work involves reticulation and hammering. I’m put off by mass produced jewellery and therefore like to create one off pieces, while keeping my work affordable.

John Franklin Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South East   

John Franklin Jewellery is a designer-maker of handmade aluminium statement jewellery, printed with colourful and unusual patterns.

The current Summer 2021 Collection was inspired by Ottoman ceramic designs from the 17th and 18th Century, as seen in the V&A Museum. Other collections are based on realistic images of flowers, butterflies and birds. The designs feature vivid and saturated colours, often using the reflecting brushed aluminium through the colour to produce an iridescent effect.

The earring and pendant designs are intricately hand-sawn and finished from aluminium, enabling ultra-lightweight earrings to be made with bold designs.

Julia Wright

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: North West   

The soft forms of weather worn pebbles, the repeated structure of moss and lichen growth and patterns in clusters of barnacles, inspire my jewellery.

I use combinations of hand-pierced and domed silver and copper with added textile details to create wearable pieces that echo these shapes. The contrast between the textures of metal and crochet/felt fibres enables me to explore the tactile qualities of each material and I enjoy the very different processes involved in making each element.

Kate Holdsworth Designs

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Midlands   

Kate’s jewellery collections are all inspired by textiles, whether it is knitting with yarn and fusing this with glass, or taking the inspiration from knitted patterns and textures and translating this into silver. Kate has several collections that are linked by a textile theme but each has a different feel and look. Kate Holdsworth is a jewellery designer maker. She has always been fascinated with the tactile textural qualities of knit. While studying at Bucks New University she became intrigued with the contrasting textures that could be achieved by juxtaposing knit with other materials. Kate went on to develop her love of contrasting materials on her MA at Nottingham Trent University where she produced an innovative process of fusing knit and glass together to create a unique composite textile. This led Kate to a year’s placement on the Design Space Programme developing new jewellery products. Since Design Space she has set up a collective with 10 other jewellery designer makers at Quarter Studios where she shares a workshop within the Birmingham Jewellery Quarter.

Kathryn Arbon Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South West   

I have worked as a jewellery designer-maker for around twenty-five years, I have been teaching silver jewellery related processes for ten.

My jewellery is inspired by pattern and ancient script and also the natural coastal environment where I live. I particularly enjoy making limited edition and one-off pieces in precious metals incorporating unusual gemstones.

Some of my jewellery is made using the lost wax process. I carve the piece in wax first which enables me to create the sculptural forms needed in some of my designs. Other pieces are carefully formed and pierced by hand using a piercing saw.

Alongside my own work, I love to design and create one-off commissions from pre-loved jewellery for others to be handed down to future generations.

Inspiration comes from the many different forms, textures and patterns of the natural world, whether it’s a smooth beach pebble or a spiky teasel seed head.
