85fathoms

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: North East   

My work has evolved from a background of engineering and boat building/refurbishment, plus a natural ability and love of making things by hand in wood.

I design and make items of furniture that have complementary features of aesthetic and structure, and that ultimately let the natural beauty of the wood remain the main focus of each piece. My designs often blend a contemporary modern look with a somewhat retro tinge, with strong influences from my boat building days in the use of laminated curves and the use of contrasting wood types to induce a colour variation into the aesthetic.

I use no machinery in the construction at all and each piece is finely finished by hand to really let the wood and natural features stand out.

Annette Petch Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: North East   

I make intricate, delicate jewellery in silver and gold from necklaces and bracelets to earrings, cufflinks and rings. I also make tiny silver books with messages inside, little boxes to hide your secrets in, and small decorative bowls.

I create textures and forms in the metal using a technique called chasing. I am fascinated by the way the lines I chase onto one side of the metal can be altered and transformed by working from the back to form emerging three dimensional shapes.

I am influenced by the structure and texture of natural forms, such as shells, seed pods, leaves and rippled sand, and I like my jewellery to incorporate sound and movement.

region: North East   

My work is inspired by the architecture of Indian monuments and palaces. The geometry used in the formation of the structural arches of these monuments, the intricate details of the ceilings, and the decorative panels in the windows and screens, all form a rich heritage for my work. The jewellery has the essence of the […]

Eleanor Rogerson Enamel and Copper

category: Enamel   Jewellery and Silverware   Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: North East   

I make copper and enamelled copper pieces such as wall hangings, bowls, tealight holders and jewellery.  I am mostly self-taught, starting from an enamelling taster course, where I fell in love with enamelling and wanted to learn more, which then inspired me to learn copper-working too.  For most items I make, I start with sheet copper which I cut and shape.  Some pieces I leave as copper, possibly with some patina, but others I then enamel using vitreous enamel.  I love seeing how each piece evolves, starting from a simple concept, but then guided by the materials themselves as they react to the processes.

Frances Julie Whitelaw

category: Jewellery and Silverware   Metalwork   

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.

My thrown stoneware pots are reduction fired in a gas kiln. Form and function are integral to the work and my objective is to make pots to be used, cherished and cooked in and to enhance the presentation of food.

The ripples of water as it eddies and swirls around objects fascinate me as do marks on pebbles, lichen and stonemason’s chisel marks on Yorkshire barns. These are represented by imprints and sgraffitto and with the three dot ‘Cintamani’ motif are on-going inspirations.

Jan Hinchliffe McCutcheon

category: Jewellery and Silverware   Metalwork   

region: North East   

My degree in jewellery and silversmithing at Loughborough College of Art and Design in 1977 equipped me to pursue a career as a designer maker of jewellery. I aim to design jewellery with originality and a distinctive character. The soft ripple texture surface silver is a tactile feature of many pieces.

I use jewellery hand working techniques with materials such as silver, gold, gold leaf, ebony and textile. My work is exhibited in the UK at shows such as ‘Origin’ London, ‘Art in Action’ Oxfordshire and Stroud International Textiles Festival. International exhibitions have featured my jewellery in Boston, USA; South Korea; Japan; Germany; Spain; Poland and Slovakia. I have a piece of jewellery in mima (Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art) International Jewellery Collection. Work is also bought by UK and overseas private collectors.

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.

Laconic – Lindsay Forbes

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: North East   

Laconic is a sustainable brand by jewellery designer, Lindsay Forbes. Crafted by hand in small batches using traditional Goldsmithing techniques and responsibly sourced materials.

My design inspirations range through travelling; experiencing culture and history, my Scottish heritage; folklore influenced by natural landscape and exploring design boundaries. I have an appreciation for minimal and sculptural design as well as consideration for the history and purpose of jewellery.

I use traditional Goldsmithing techniques, including lost-wax casting and forging. Cast elements are combined with hand-built details fabricated by cutting sheet metal, forging wire and soldering.

Laconic was born from my desire to do something I wholeheartedly believed in and was passionate about. It’s been influenced by my experiences and I continue to learn and be inspired by what’s possible. Years spent at art school taught me the design process, drawing and designing to a brief and knowledge of how materials work together to craft them into existence, building upon this by working in the industry learning and honing my skills. I hope that when you see and wear a piece of Laconic jewellery you can appreciate the attention to detail within each element, which has been designed with sustainability and responsibility in mind.
