Winter Exhibition 2021


Our winter exhibition is in full swing and the gallery is full of gorgeous jewellery just waiting to be snapped up!

This year for our Winter Exhibition we really wanted to focus on colour. We have curated a collection of work from fabulous guest jewellery designers that all use colour in interesting and inventive ways. They achieve this in their work through their use of exquisite natural gemstones, enamelling and printing techniques.

BARBORA RYBAROVA

Colours, textures and crystal formations of natural gemstones are the starting point for each of Barbora's designs. Selecting and finding a source of these exquisite stones is an important part of her creative process, where each one is carefully handpicked and considered.

After graduating in Fine Art in 2009 at Central Saint Martins College in London, Barbora moved to South America for an extensive period of time where she learned the craft of jewellery making from skilled jewellers. Here bloomed her love for gemstones and the craft itself. Upon returning to London in 2012, Barbora launched her own brand which has been growing and evolving ever since.

She now works from her sunny studio in Margate, creating one of a kind jewels and limited collections.

EMILY HIGHAM

Emily is a contemporary jeweller who uses the process of enamelling to explore colour and pattern within jewellery. Using a combination of industrial liquid enamel foils and lustres, Emily creates delicate jewellery pieces that are inspired by the colours and patterns of honeycomb and the shapes and layers found within beehives.

Emily graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2016 with a BA(Hons) in Jewellery and Silversmithing and in 2017, won the Guild of Enamellers bursary award. Since then, she has been developing her collection from her studio at home in Lancashire and showcasing her work in various galleries, exhibitions and shows throughout the country. 

GWYNETH WILLIAMSON

 

Gwyneth is a jewellery designer maker based in Wakefield, West Yorkshire. She studied Illustration at Hull College of Art and gained a First Class Honors Degree in Graphic Design in 1987. This led to spending many years freelancing as an illustrator creating children's books, educational books and cards. After enrolling on a jewellery making course, Gwyneth changed career paths to become a jeweller.

Gwyneth's jewellery is made from silver, copper and brass with the addition of mono-printed plywood elements. Her work explores organic and geometric textures, shapes and patterns, either by hammering, stamping or ‘imprinting’ onto the metal. 

She recently became a member of the Art House in Wakefield, where she refreshed her print making skills. This sparked her exploration for using wood, paint and print in her pieces, introducing colour into her jewellery.
Many of Gwyneth's wooden pieces are unique due to the mono-print technique. She prints using her own lino-cut patterns and rolls ink onto the ‘waste’ plywood after the shapes have been cut out, using it as a plate; layering and playing until she is happy with the result.

Gwyneth's work is intuitive, she never really knows what patterns and textures will emerge; enjoying the playfulness of the process.

JANE MOORE

 

Established and respected for her distinctive work, Jane Moore has been a strong presence in British jewellery and craft for more decades than she cares to admit.  With its whimsical charm and attention to detail, her jewellery is an authentic expression of a warm, outgoing personality and instantly recognisable to fans of contemporary jewellery. She is prolific in developing her unique aesthetic to create new designs that are sensitive, considered and beautifully made. 

Jane’s inspiration comes from the simple silhouettes of traditional Japanese artefacts and textiles embellished with tiny, floral motifs. She also recalls vivid memories of her Mother’s intricate embroidery.  Ideas begin as drawings in her sketch book, where they can evolve unconstrained by the limitations of the process. Only when she arrives at a pleasing image does she begin to consider whether it is technically possible. While enamelling is rooted in traditional techniques Jane also embraces more modern, industrial methods, such as photo etching, laser cutting, or the application of fine enamel transfers.
