Sp-Ring Exhibition 2020 !
This Friday 14th February sees the return of our annual Sp-Ring Exhibition. Now in its third year, the exhibition showcases fine, handcrafted rings in silver, gold and precious gemstones from some of the UK's most celebrated and visionary independent jewellery designers.
Be the first to get your paws on our exquisite new ring collections from Deborah Cadby, Ulla Hörnfeldt, Natalie Jane Harris, Roxanne Gilbert, Justin Duance & Yen.
Plus we are lucky enough to welcome back the beautiful work of Alison Macleod and Helen Brice for this Sp-Ring showcase.
As always, this exclusive exhibition is for a limited time only and ends on 31 May 2020. The highlight of our calendar, this showcase is a perfect opportunity for those seeking an alternative engagement or wedding ring, or a 'just because' ring.
This exhibition is a real must for all jewellery lovers!
Ulla Hörnfeldt's jewellery is characteristically clean, bold and without pretence. She starts by selecting a stone or combination of stones, and builds an individual design to draw out their special character. As she experiments, cutting and shaping many of the stones herself, she aims for a final piece which is recognisably her work, maintaining the continuity of concept she has sought for over many decades.
Gemstones are the primary focus of Natalie's jewellery, and design always begins with the highlighting of a stone's inherent natural beauty.
Natalie started her business in 2006 after completing a degree in Silversmithing and Jewellery at Loughborough University and a postgraduate year at Bishopsland Workshops. With a wealth of knowledge and experience she moved back to the Midlands, and now works from her studio at The Harley Foundation in the grounds of Welbeck Abbey, on the edge of Sherwood Forest.
Proud of her Vietnamese heritage and complemented by an early childhood spent in Wales, Yen Duong takes delight from a diverse upbringing. Upon graduation from Sir John Cass, she established Yen Jewellery in 1996, and has since exhibited at prestigious galleries. These include Sotheby’s, The Goldsmiths’ Company and The Crafts Council, having also worked with Liberty of London, Selfridges and Harvey Nichols.
Yen's designs are engaging, the tactile nature of the jewellery invites touch and interaction. The physical movement and visual fluidity in her designs encapsulate a rare intriguing quality.
Anne Morgan Jewellery has exhibited Yen's work in silver since 2019, and are delighted to present a selection of her rings in gold and diamonds for this one-off showcase. Not to be missed!
Helen is a self-taught Goldsmith, having studied a BA(Hons) in Design Crafts at Hereford College of Arts.
Her asymmetric designs stem from a love of architectural and organic detailing, pattern and texture, and Helen uses different finishes and contrasting materials - mainly Gold, but also Sterling Silver, Platinum & Palladium - to compliment the specially selected gems.
This year Helen has sent us an entirely new selection of exquisite rings with colourful and playful combinations of gemstones.
Roxanne Gilbert creates one-of-a-kind, wearable sculptures from her studio in South London. Roxanne explores repetition and scale, building up multiple individual elements to create intricate textures and bold forms. Spheres and rounded surfaces currently feature prominently in her pieces as she continues to experiment with this shape. Roxanne injects colour and texture through her use of precious and semi-precious gemstones and pearls.
Cadby & Co are a family business that specialise in using old cut diamonds and fine gem stones. The company combines Deborah Cadby’s designs and skills with Jeff Cadby’s many years of dealing in antique jewellery. Together they create beautiful collections of jewellery, using certified diamonds and coloured stones set in 22ct gold for its rich warm colour and platinum for its elegant, steely subtlety. Unique hand cut stones have a nature of their own, with irregular shapes, unusual dimensions and uneven facets with each piece of jewellery designed to suit the stones.
Justin Duance crafts his work from a workshop in the woods in Tregwainton Pumphouse, Penzance. Justin is inspired by his environment and his work demonstrates the contrast between textures of land and sea. He achieves this by combining wood or sand with precious metals, to give each design an elemental feel, or by texturing the metal in a way that creates a feeling of organic movement. Justin first developed his sandcasting technique over six years ago, and it is this technique that gives the resulting piece an unusual and organic texture.
Alison Macleod creates jewellery in silver and gold, inspired by vintage and antique treasures and the stories they tell. Based in Dumfries and Galloway, she has been running her jewellery business since leaving art college 11 years ago, and now has a studio in the centre of Glasgow. Alison’s Catkin Collection draws on a pattern seen long ago on an antique ring, which inspired her to develop her unique technique of layering hundreds of tiny disks to make a pattern reminiscent of the Spring catkin flower.
Alongside the curated collections of rings from our guest exhibitors, Anne is showcasing her geometric diamond rings. In this range she celebrates the raw beauty of grey diamonds, coloured by their inclusions and imperfections. Her choice of contrasting metals and finishes further enhances the unique character of each diamond, creating a beautiful collection of one-off rings.
