Ancient Treasures

category: Jewellery and Silverware   Mixed Media and Recycled   Paper   

region: Midlands   

I studied textile design at the Central School of Art and Design. I was always inspired by how colours react with each other, and also loved texture, particularly in nature. Researching at the British Museum I was much taken by the ancient necklaces in the Middle Eastern section. This inspired the development of a range of necklaces, made with handmade beads. I am interested in that which is lost, obscured, veiled, from an age long ago: much of the original colour has been rubbed off in the long journey through time but flecks of gold occasionally glimmer through the dusty neutral shades. As well as developing my range, I also run bead and necklace making courses.

Andrew Spilsbury Shaker Boxes

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: South West   

I have had a love of working with wood for over 40 years, mostly furniture making but also some turning and now box making.  I love the smell of wood when it is worked, exposing and presenting the grain for others to appreciate.  I have made furniture inspired by pieces made by the Shaker craftsmen and now make Shaker boxes to their traditional patterns, using Cherry and Maple woods steam bent and fastened with copper tacks and rivets. My boxes, trays and carriers with handles make thoughtful and useful presents. I continue to develop my range of creations in order to offer useful and decorative objects to treasure and enjoy.  Sizes are from 9cm x 6cm x 3cm to 36cm x 25cm x 15cm. Prices from £20 to £140 approx.

Anita Nemkyova

category: Leather   

region: Wales   

Accessories label Anita Nemkyova was set up as a project to create beautifully crafted pieces. Every product is skilfully designed and made by hand in my workshop, ensuring high quality throughout the entire manufacturing process. With an emphasis on ethically and environmentally conscious production, I collaborate with sustainable British and Italian tanneries, using primarily vegetable-tanned leathers. This is an old artisan process where only natural extracts and dyes are used in order to be environmentally friendly. Leathers treated this way keep their natural look and unique character. With my passion for sustainability, materials such as cork or pinatex will be added to our seasonal collections, along with recycled materials such as canvas or recycled leather with the aim to reduce / reuse / recycle. My seasonal collections include accessories from bracelets to belts and body pieces, lifestyle products such as bags, backpacks, wallets and other leather goods.

My memories have formed the way I think and feel and the way in which I work. The found objects I use with the metal and clay, small and insignificant, used and forgotten, are the physical aspect of work that is based on an emotional, nostalgic concept. Tools and utensils, the things we use and […]

Anna Blair

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: North West   

I work with fabrics, predominately silks, to create wall art and accessories. My work is influenced by details found within the natural world. Lichen and flowers are my main source of inspiration, with their subtle but intricate details reflecting empathetically the textures I create within my work.
I combine the use of traditional shibori techniques and incorporate a modern twist to create unique items. Shibori is the Japanese technique of binding fabric to create a resist when dyeing or to add a three dimensional texture to fabric. The modern influence is also seen in the process I use for adding colour. I use digitally printed fabric using designs created from my own photographs of plants and flowers

Anna Harding

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South West   

A maker of contemporary jewellery in sterling silver and resin, I use multiple layering techniques to suspend delicate silver elements, freshwater pearls and tiny filigree style pieces made from resin inside a handmade resin shell.

Ideas are formed around observations of the landscape and the ways in which it can mirror or influence emotion. When I see something beautiful in nature I am moved to create an impression of how it felt to be in that moment.

Using quiet colour combinations and subtle changes in texture, current pieces capture the mood of soft, reflected light diffused through clouds.
