nbNg is the collection of fold-formed work made by designer-maker Nettie Birch of Ng Jewellery. Very different from her other jewellery and born from a desire to explore how metals move naturally rather than forcing shapes upon them, the pieces reflect organic forms and sweeping shapes. Using the maleability of copper and, more unusually the strength and lightness of aluminium, large pieces have been created which can be scaled for more everyday wear.

As a designer, maker and thinker; I am interested in value systems, with specific reference to architecture. I recognise a beauty in weathered, scratched and used surfaces within architecture. Initially stemming from aged agricultural architecture; and now looking into our relationships with architecture, through the markings and textures found within cities. I work to produce […]

Nobuko Okumura

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Midlands   

Nobuko graduated from Birmingham City University with a BA in Jewellery and Silversmithing in 2007. Since 2008, she has had a workshop to create her own collections in Birmingham, Jewellery Quarter. Her inspiration comes from her childhood such as toys and the things she used to collect.

Nobuko’s pieces become mementos of the past, informed by the things she used to treasure. This process has been a rich source of ideas. Her current work features connected small cubes. The idea behind this was born from a snake toy she used to own. With that feature she has created her Vertebrae Collection. Her second collection, Treads Collection, features thread like delicate intricacy and has a very lightweight construction. She continuously explores her life’s interests.

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?”

Rach Richardson

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South West   

I’m a self-taught ceramist. I handcraft feather-light porcelain jewellery from my tiny studio in South East Cornwall.

My pieces are moulded from treasures found whilst enjoying the beautiful Cornish beaches. My colour palette is clean and simple, white porcelain clay against platinum glaze and silver hardware. My style is delicate and contemporary, with a sprinkling of edge!

I aim for the most sustainable methods and materials in my work, from recycled sterling silver to my solar-powered kiln, recycling every scrap of clay to create zero waste.

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.

I started to realise how people spend time fidgeting with jewellery, sometimes for comfort or just while day dreaming, even if they realise it or not. I found this very interesting and it inspired me to create a collection of wearable jewellery that is also very tactile – pieces that want to be touched as well […]
