Angie’s colourful jewellery is hand-crafted in her Surrey studio using Jesmonite, sterling silver and nylon braided cord. Her modern aesthetic and playful colour palettes are inspired by everyday encounters; mid century modern interiors, colour and pattern; and 20th century artists such as Ellsworth Kelly, Matisse and Patrick Heron. Originally trained as a fine jewellery designer, Angie worked for a number of high end brands for 10 years or so, before moving from London to set up her home studio.
Her colour-saturated necklaces, pendants and earrings have a fresh, contemporary feel, using bold, playful shapes with a smooth, tactile finish. The earrings are light-weight to wear and pendants and necklaces are pop-over in style with a woven sliding ‘clasp’, allowing them to be worn long or short.
Jesmonite is an eco-friendly, water-based resin primarily used in sculpture, prop-making and architectural detailing. Angie hand dyes it with pigments to create her bespoke colour palettes. Each piece starts with hand-carved plaster-of-paris master shapes, from which molds are made. Primary colour pigments are combined to create each colour and the Jesmonite is then mixed and hand cast in the molds. Once cured the shapes are sanded and finished pebble-smooth, then assembled into jewellery.
Bespoke colour palettes can be created by commission.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
