CharlieM jewellery

category: Jewellery & Silverware   

region: South East   

Artisan, contemporary handmade jewellery inspired by a love of the natural world, with pieces often nodding towards the clean lines and simplicity ingrained from a long career in graphic design, complemented by other artistic disciplines such as fine art and stained glass work. A long appreciation and fascination with jewellery brought me to silversmithing: having always been motivated to create beautiful things, I now channel that energy, vision and attention to detail into my jewellery work, creating pieces in precious metals and often incorporating precious and semi-precious gemstones. I delight in creating practical, wearable works of art that customers can treasure, and dare to hope that these pieces may become cherished future keepsakes.

Charlotte E Padgham Contemporary Art & Jewellery

category: Jewellery & Silverware   

region: London   

Unconventional sustainable artwork and jewellery using the imperfect, discarded and intervention of the self as inspiration, tool, and material. Circular economy principles are an integral part of my process. With a focus and commitment to ethical and sustainable making, materials and waste are reused, reworked and recycled within and across my art and jewellery practices. I am passionate about sourcing materials with my own hands, re-using what is already in circulation, and giving new life to what cannot be recycled.

This multi-level interrogation has culminated in artwork and jewellery collections that incorporate unusual materials, harness both control and spontaneity and have the potential to, or the feeling of being able to, transform and evolve over time.

I am proud to be among the first 50 jewellers to have taken the Fair Luxury Pledge which began in 2021, a collaboration of jewellery industry changemakers with a vision for a responsible and sustainable future.

All of my precious metal jewellery is Hallmarked at the London Assay Office and I am a registered Fair Trade goldsmith. I am a member of The Society of British Jewellers, The Guild of Jewellery Designers, the Association for Contemporary Jewellery and Precious Collective. I am also included in the Crafts Council Directory.

Chilli glass by Penny Carter

category: Glass   Jewellery & Silverware   

region: South West   

Contemporary hand made glass beads. I create each bead individually in a flame, and they then grow into unique pieces of jewellery. I started my career as a glass blower and have gradually began working in a smaller scale to work more intricately with colour.

Enjoying superposing the light of juicy transparent glass, and the deep pithy intensity of opaque colours. By peeling through these layers it’s possible to create edible fruit like seeds – chilli pepper and pomegranate, kiwi and prickly pear…spikey gooseberry or peppery damson.

chloe michell jewellery

category: Jewellery & Silverware   

region: South West   

I make delicate jewellery from silver, gold and gemstones. I combine precious metals, stones and some oxidisation of the silver to create contrast, incorporating small stone set granulations in my designs to add another level of detail. I never compromise on quality and work hard to create an intended organic, slightly irregular feel to my pieces, with my jewellery having a delicate human handprint on it.

My work is inspired by the North Cornwall coast line where I focus on the irregularities in shapes from pebbles, small details from rock pools and the contrast of the slate and quartz inclusions. After graduating from Truro College with a BA in Silversmithing and Jewellery with a First Class degree I continue to expand my knowledge of my discipline and will be studying the MA in Contemporary Craft this coming year at Plymouth College of Art and Design.

Chris Barnes

category: Ceramics   

region: North West   

Chris Barnes makes his pottery at his studios in Cumbria and Argyll. The Stoneware comprising a range of bowls, plates, mugs, jugs, vases etc. is thrown using a kickwheel and completed with various high fired glazes. He formulates his own glazes using a variety of minerals to produce a rich colour response combined with a very durable surface. Each of the pots is unique as a result of the entire making process. First the clay is hand thrown on the wheel or slabbed to produce the forms. After the first firing the glaze is applied by hand. Finally careful control of the kiln atmosphere during the second firing brings out the character of the ware, its colours and durable finish.

Chris Eckersley

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: Herefordshire   

Chris Eckersley is an artist and designer who makes sculpture, objects,  and furniture. His interest is in making well-crafted and carefully considered pieces which are designed to last. Chris was born and brought up in Birmingham – in those days a hive of small industries known as the ‘Workshop of the World’  – and so inherited the Brummie attitude that it’s perfectly feasible to get a small workshop and make things by hand. One-off commissions for individual pieces are welcomed.

Chris is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, a former Visiting Tutor at Central Saint Martins College, and an External Examiner on the Spatial Design course at the University of Hertfordshire.

In 2010 Chris Eckersley set up the ‘Bodging Milano’ project, whereby nine designer-makers rediscovered the ancient art of ‘bodging’ (greenwood chair-making) in the ash woods of Herefordshire – and then took the results to the Milan Furniture Fair.

Claire Settle Designs

category: Glass   Jewellery & Silverware   Printmaking   

region: South West   

I live in the foothills of The Mendips in Somerset, UK, taking inspiration from the hills and woods around me. Following a course in silver (a totally new medium to me) my love of trees and interest in silver joined paths, and exploring metal clay I discovered a totally new way of working with silver, combining silver and leaves to create a new art form.​
My silver leaf jewellery is unique as each leaf is an exact copy/impression of a real leaf and literally unique. Using a painstaking process each leaf takes several weeks to make but with care, the result can be perfect.
In addition to Silver, I also work with glass, combining glass and different metals, like silver, copper or brass. When silver is added in the form of silver leaf or silver wire, the effects are amazing. These pieces of glass can either be worn as jewellery or be mounted together in a picture frame.
I am very lucky to have worked with some wonderful people, learning Cyanotype among other processes. This fascinating medium allows me to to use transparencies of photos I have taken, allowing the sun to do the magic.
