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.

Claudia Wiegand Handmade Glass

category: Glass   

region: Midlands   

I design and make contemporary kiln formed glassware including home accessories, personalised gifts, jewellery, wall art and splashbacks. Exploring colour combinations and mixing translucent, opalescent, iridised and dichroic glass with metal inclusions, I also experiment with different temperatures to create perfectly smooth or highly tactile pieces. My work is predominantly abstract, defined by the fabulous range of colours available. Nature is a major source of inspiration – geological patterns and elements, trees branches and roots, shore findings – but it is the material itself, the way it transforms from solid to liquid and reveals its amazing hues and textures which keeps firing my passion for glass. Originally a mosaic artist, I trained in Bristol and work from my studio near Pershore where I run workshops and have a number of kilns and workbench space available for hire by glass fusing enthusiasts.

Coo & co

region: North West   

My background is fine art, I then spent 15 years as a community artist facilitating creativity in others, a few years ago I found screenprinting to be the best way of reproducing my ideas, I like to use collaged vintage paper under prints and use fabrics to make useful and beautiful items. My themes seem to always be about nature but whatever the subject I love to celebrate the scratchy hand drawn line.
