Flambeaux Jewellery

My passion for jewellery making developed after I discovered how a piece of metal could be brought to life.

Flyingcheesetoastie

category: Glass   

region: Scotland   

I work from my studio in Glasgow and specialise in kiln-formed glass. I use traditional techniques such as screen-printing with fired enamels, combined with the modern innovation of water-jet cutting. My unique range of precision cut silhouette glass creatures are adorned with various whimsical designs in bright permanent colours.

I graduated from Edinburgh College of Art with a BA(Hons) in Architectural Glass and have exhibited my sculpture globally in group exhibitions. My work is available to buy online, with most pieces custom made to order and I can also be commissioned for bespoke glass work.

For Your Beads Only

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South West   

For Your Beads Only is bold and beautiful jewellery made by Sulamith Kilian-Carter. Every piece is individually handcrafted with much thought and care. Sulamith uses a wide range of materials to create her jewellery, from colourful handmade Indian lampwork glass beads, semi-precious gemstones, natural shell and wooden beads to vintage and recycled beads and fabric to ensure a unique look and finish.
The impressions and experiences collected during her travels in South America, and her studies into different material cultures, have motivated her to become a jewellery designer and have a strong influence on her work today. Every piece has its own personality and is given a name which best reflects the inspiration drawn on and material used to make it.

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.

Frinn Handmade Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South West   

Catherine is a designer maker from Devon who creates handmade silver jewellery which incorporates brass, copper and bead work. A fascination with birds inspires a lot of her work – drawings of birds watched from her Dartmoor studio and on travels further afield are incorporated into the designs for each piece. She tries to create designs which are delicate and include movement to evoke some of the qualities of the birds which she studies. Catherine is largely self taught and developed her style working with bird imagery, contrasts between Silver and Brass, engraving and oxidation techniques.

Gemma Wightman Ceramics

category: Ceramics   

region: London   

Gemma Wightman makes an exciting range of hand thrown porcelain tableware. Exploring the wonders of porcelain, she manipulates forms so that they look as fresh as when they were first created on the potter’s wheel.
Each piece entices you to touch it with their deep thrown lines and sumptuous curves. Gemma takes great pleasure in knowing that her pieces are an enjoyment to those that use them.
Gemma formulates her own glazes in order to produce the subtle variations in tone of both the shiny turquoise and satin cream glazes. Before the final firing the pieces are individually dipped in the glaze.
Gemma trained in the early 2000s, firstly at the Surrey Institute of Art & Design in Farnham and then on the Bath Spa University Ceramics degree course under the esteemed tutorage of Felicity Aylieff and Takeshi Yasuda.
