Based in Buckinghamshire, I have been designing and making jewellery for over 9 years. I make all my jewellery by hand, working mainly in silver, gold, and semi-precious stones, and love creating beautiful, contemporary, wearable pieces.

My designs have an organic, tactile feel, and share a sense of delicacy and movement. I gain inspiration from many different sources including light, texture, and natural and fluid forms.

Anne V Massey

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South East   

I studied Wood, Metal, Ceramics and Plastics at Brighton. Initially I worked in mild steel which I forged and welded, but became disenchanted with this technique and the work I was producing. I took a City & Guilds course in Silversmithing, and joined Brass Monkeys studios in Hove in 2002, where I established my current business.

I am inspired by natural forms and the rhythms of the natural world, abstracted into simple, timeless forms. All my work employs the technique of anticlastic raising, performed with hammers and mallets over plastic, wood or metal formers.  It gives light, strong, sinuous forms which are deceptively easy to wear. Many individual pieces are hammer-forged before forming to introduce texture. All my jewellery is made from silver.  I feel compelled, wherever possible, to make each design from a single piece of metal. My work displays both inner and outer surfaces.

Ashley James Design

category: 3D Sculptural Work   Ceramics   

region: South East   

I am a ceramic artist living and working in Hampshire.

My work is influenced by an interest in the natural world; a love of farm life and the surrounding countryside. I strive to capture something quirky and unique in each piece I create and I hope my work captures my personality. It’s important to me that each piece tells its own narrative. Working in stoneware I use natural oxides, underglaze stains and polymers on the clay surface, occasionally embellished with galvanised steel wire for a contemporary feel. My ceramic work is priced from £60-£500.

My work has been shown at Southampton Art Gallery, St Barbe Museum & Art Gallery, Mottisfont, (National Trust), Sherfield School and at The Grange, Northington (English Heritage).

Beaded Blooms

category: 3D Sculptural Work   Fashion Accessories   Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: South East   

I design and create bespoke handcrafted French Beaded flowers to treasure through stringing thousands of 2mm glass seed-beads onto fine craft-wire, with a combination of twists and wraps.

French Beading is a 19th century art form that has gone through waves of popularity. Believed to have originated in both Italy and France, the craft was predominantly favoured by women in order to earn a little money of their own and to decorate their homes. In the Victorian era French Beading became associated with the passing of a loved one as many memorials were created using the technique.

I research each bloom I replicate before I begin designing. Flowers have such a powerful impact on us, creating memories, improving our mental health and sending messages, so it is really important that my designs are as accurate as possible and that they capture the splendour of the blooms I replicate.

region: South East   

My work is inspired by stories, poems, over-hearings and memories. I am based in Yoxford in Suffolk. Re-using materials is an integral part of my work. I like to feel that they have ‘lived a little’ with their own story to tell showing signs of ageing and how they have been treated or, perhaps, mistreated. So my […]

Birgitte Bruun Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South East   

I make a range of Contemporary Silver Jewellery, including bangles, necklaces and earrings. From my Danish roots I am influenced by Scandinavian Design; my pieces are simple, contemporary in design, timeless and accessible to wear.

I like to produce contrasts in my work, whether by texturing, oxidising or milling the Silver. I particularly enjoy shaping the metal by forging and planishing and many of my pieces involve these techniques. I also include interesting semi-precious stones in my designs and highlights of gold. My full collection and examples of commissions can be seen on my website.

I learnt the art of Silver Jewellery making through various evening classes and City & Guild Courses. I am a member of Cambridge Open Studios and participate in July each year. Commissions welcome and my Studio can be visited throughout the year by appointment.

I have been working as a stained glass artist since 1994. Using these techniques I make individual pieces of jewellery and mosaic.

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 Shaw Silks

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: South East   

Unique one-off items created using only the finest silk fabrics, threads and trimmings. All are individually handmade by the designer in her workshop in West Sussex, England.

Initially trained as a maker of bespoke silk lampshades at a workshop in Brighton that supplied top international design houses, Diane started out by ‘recycling’ the silk remnants of this trade. She created a unique collection of cushions inspired by the shapes and colours of the individual fabric pieces themselves to which she added silk embroidery and other embellishments. The collection has grown to include other home decor items as well as bags and gift cards.

The main design emphasis is on clean lines, and a neat, tailored feel that uses sumptuous silks to sculpture colours into folds, pleats and soft geometric shapes. Luxuriant dupions are layered with cool, crisp silk linens; royal taffetas are swathed with embroidered organza, and high-tech silk textiles from international design houses are complimented by simple hand woven natural silks.

Diane Shaw is a designer-maker currently listed on the UK Crafts Council National Register of Makers and in the Homes and Gardens Magazine Directory.
