I specialise in fine jewellery making, mostly bespoke and also have a range of jewellery designs for sale in silver and gold, incorporating precious, semi precious gems and diamonds.

category: Printmaking   

region: London   

My work is inspired by a love of the natural world, and an interest in folklore and fairy tales. The flora and fauna of the English countryside is a reoccurring theme and I like to draw creatures well known in the landscape and part of English folklore. I’m also slightly obsessed with pattern and decoration! […]

Carin Lindberg Jewellery

category: Jewellery & Silverware   

region: South West   

“Scandi meets Cornish”.
Natural Scandi elegance & Coastal Cornish ruggedness.
Made in Cornwall by Swedish jeweller Carin Lindberg.

The Rugged collection is inspired by the spectacularly rugged north Cornish coastline with its wild cliffs and rock textures. The ever changing colour of the waters; from pale grey-blue through vibrant turquoise, to deep emerald green. From the hazy white of sea mist and the vibrant greens of the surrounding landscape, to the moody greys of stormy skies. Textured metals and gloriously gleaming gems reflect this in a collection full of character, attitude and colour, just like north Cornwall. A piece of Cornwall to treasure and enjoy every day.

CARLSSON 1064 – Christina Carlsson

category: Jewellery & Silverware   

region: London   

CARLSSON 1064 gives unworn jewellery a new lease of life. I repurpose and transform clients’ own gold or silver jewellery by melting it down and creating something new. The design considers the piece’s history and the jewellery is made to suit the client’s individual style and taste.

I melt down the gold, forge or mill out the shape and form and then use traditional goldsmithing techniques to create the new treasures which often include repurposed gemstones. Jewellery and gemstones can be so meaningful and have the power to hold much more sentimental value than money could ever buy.

It is such an honour to transform the unworn into something that is cherished and can have a second lease of life.

Carly Petitt-Taylor

category: Jewellery & Silverware   

region: North West   

I graduated in 2006 from Brighton University with a First Class in Wood, Metal, Ceramics, & Plastics. Since then I have developed my work producing collection’s and limited edition ranges of wearable but unique handmade pieces.

I use many materials but predominately work in nylon monofilament, each piece is individually constructed and dyed, making every piece unique. I find inspiration from everyday observations that other people often pass by, moss on the garden wall, UHT milk pots, and fungi growing on cheese. I am obsessed with multiples, and I am very much inspired by colour, flora and fauna, science and its order and structures. I always look for new materials, and different ways to manipulate them.  My work is tactile and I encourage the wearer to change and manipulate the pieces, once handed over is out of my control. I like that the work keeps evolving without me.

Caroline Loveys

category: Glass   

region: South East   

I have been working as a stained glass artist since 1994. Using these techniques I make individual pieces of jewellery and mosaic. Using the copperfoil method (glass, copperfoil and lead free solder), my jewellery combines glass, paper collage and mixed media. I also make glass and paper tiles that I use in mosaics. All of my work can be personalized, incorporating text, names or dates into the collage.

CARV

category: Fashion Accessories   Leather   

region: South West   

CARV sustainable leather bags and accessories are crafted by founder, designer and leatherworker, Becky Cocker, in the South West UK where North Devon meets Cornwall.

The style is purposefully minimalist, re-imagining British leatherworking heritage through timeless designs free from seasonality. The stripped back, no fuss approach highlights the natural beauty of pure vegetable tanned leather with simple detailing, clean lines and structured shapes.

Every piece is beautifully made by hand down to the very last stitch. Becky is committed to using centuries-old hand leatherworking techniques without machines, being mindful of the quality and perfection of every cut and hand stitch.

Becky uses fine quality natural chemical and chrome-free vegetable tanned leather that’s kind to the environment, carefully selected with a traceable provenance on the age and origins of the animal.

This slower, mindful and ethical approach means CARV goods are made to last and uniquely beautiful, without costing the earth.

region: Scotland

Catherine Clark Embroidery

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: North East   

With a First BA (Hons) in Textile Design, I have been a contemporary stitcher for 30 years, mainly using my craft for the past 25 years to support vulnerable pupils as a Behaviour Consultant and trainer within Educational Settings. Lockdown gave me the space and permission to become a full time contemporary stitcher and complete two projects called “Circles’ and ‘Blossom’. Drawing nature is the starting point for all my embroideries using mixed media and a mark making kit which includes a toothbrush, a sharpened chop stick and numerous twigs. I am right handed but draw with my left: this gives me a sense of freedom and can create some really interesting shapes. All embroideries are developed from my drawings then formed using seeding, couching, running and occasionally blanket stitch into Wallhangings. Stitch for me is a therapy, there is a calmness that comes with the rhythm and routine of a needle, thread and fabric. I apply the therapeutic practice of Slow Stitching throughout my work as well as giving priority to research and the creative process. Presently I am inspired by the concept of Animism which is a belief that all beings, animals, plants, land and waters possess a distinct spiritual essence.

Catherine Woodall

category: Jewellery & Silverware   

region: Yorkshire   

Initially I studied engineering, followed later by art and, for me, making jewellery has been the happy combination of these two disciplines. I studied jewellery at the Yorkshire Craft Centre for five years both during and following a Certificate for mature students course at Bradford College.

All my jewellery is handmade in my workshop atop the – often – windswept Pennines. Surrounded as I am by Emily Bronte’s ‘high waving heather’ and the green wooded valleys, it is little wonder that my work is inspired by nature. The veins of a leaf and the rain or dewdrop glistening on it are some of the details I’ve drawn down. I work with silver and semi precious stones and am inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement in both Britain and Vienna at the turn of the last century.

Cathy Hilton Artisan

category: Paper   

region: South West   

I produce illustrated sculptures. Images are drawn, cut out and reassembled in to a three dimensional form. I work with a very tough, hand-made paper that is strong enough to be structural, and has a charming texture and tone. I seek to provide moments of joy, so humour, love and surprise are recurrent themes and I relish the expressions of delight that my work causes. As an illustrator I am self-taught since O level. I have a degree in Industrial Design which contributes to the structural element of my work. I’m drawn to help people express their appreciation for others, so there’s great tenderness in this work. I generally start from the emotion I wish a piece to evoke, and design from there.

CeeGee Jewellery Design

category: Glass   Jewellery & Silverware   

region: North West   

I create sterling silver earrings, necklaces and bracelets using my own handcrafted lampwork glass beads in my home studio in Cheshire, England. Formed in a hot flame using a propane and oxygen powered torch, each lampwork bead is individually handmade and unique.

My lampwork glass forms the focal part of my jewellery designs, each one a tiny little work of art. There is something hypnotic about working with hot glass, manipulating it in the flame and using a combination of heat and gravity to control the flow and create something beautiful. I learn something new every time I fire up my torch, and hope that my fascination with glass translates into my jewellery.
