Mizuki is an award winning contemporary jewellery artist, living and working in Worcestershire having graduated from Hereford College of Arts.
Practicing in mark-making and playing with paper, gives Mizuki simple yet delicate design ideas in her jewellery making. Enamelling is Mizuki’s most recent fascination in her practice, she creates unique mark-making patterns on delicate enamelled copper surfaces using the sgraffito (scratching) technique. Every line she draws is individual and is changed by the firing time in the kiln giving different results in each project. Oxidised black silver fastenings for each enamelled elements are carefully designed and handmade by Mizuki, the black lines cast like shadow lines parallel with the scratched enamel marks.
Almost all of Mizuki’s jewellery creations are unique and one-off piceces. Once a piece is made or during its process of making, it feeds her inspiration to get and grow new ideas for the next project.
Mizuki was awarded 1st for the 2017 Herefordshire Art Week prize for her exhibition at Old Mayor's Parlour. She was also selected for Sue Herdman’s One to Watch award in her first MADE LONDON 2017 craft fair and Best In Show at Made By Hand, Cheltenham in 2018.
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.
