Teresa Crickmar

Teresa makes jewellery with passion and love. Her work embodies the journey of resilience, recovery, healing and connection. The metals are taken to the edge of destruction by fire and force to be nurtured into something permanent, precious and still. The making process, the experience the work has gone through, is held and celebrated. Hand pouring molten metal, fusing and reticulation offer a playful dance between material and maker. Due to the nature of how each piece is made every single item is unique, even a pair of earrings will be different, just like each of us. 

She says "I look for the small, beautiful things because they have always saved me. It takes practice to let go, but I'm in awe of what is going to be revealed". 

Her professional experience includes over 25 years as a jeweller, 20 years as a qualified teacher and 9 years as a Reiki Master.  She co-founded the award-winning social enterprise, GAP Learning CIC, and spent a year as the Artist in Residence in Newton Stewart, Scotland. She currently runs a successful Jewellery School alongside making her own work in her workshop in Lode, just outside Cambridge.
