Annabel Perrin

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: North West   

I am a surface pattern designer, specialising in the creation of unique print designs, which I apply to home textiles/accessories. I have a First Class Honours degree in Textiles and completed a Masters in Design in 2012. Following this, I developed my own brand and launched my first collection.

I create designs using a combination of hand drawn imagery and CAD. They are then digitally printed onto 100% heavy weight cotton in the UK. This printed fabric is sold by the metre or used to create hand-made home accessories, including cushions and limited edition, re-upholstered chairs. Buildings, maps and destinations inspire me. I love the aesthetic appearance of architecture. My enthusiasm about mid century design, geometrics and vintage products also influences my design process.

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   Textiles - Clothing   

region: South West   

I make kitchen textiles products and cushions. I’ve been a maker all my life – from a child if I wanted something I was encouraged to make it. My products are designed on paper, from which fabrics are printed and then I make the final pieces myself. They come initially from an idea of producing a range of pictures that could have been produced by famous artists. Cushions offer a natural way to present them, but I also have a passion for big aprons, like catering aprons but with designs that make them fun or as elegant as the apron itself will make people look. Wearing a big apron makes you feel ready for work, like you can achieve the world!

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. Some jewellery designs feature integral earring wires, brooch pins/ catches or loops. I feel compelled, wherever possible, to make each design from a single piece of metal. My work displays both inner and outer surfaces.

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.
