Ellie Gooch is a recent award winning graduate from Plymouth College of Art….
Ellie’s collection of geometric wire form jewellery is inspired by star maps and made from a choice of silver, luscious powder-coated colours or gold-plate. When you pick up these pieces or wear them, it is a pleasant surprise to find that they are articulated, allowing for playful movement.
Charlotte Lowe Jewellery was established in 2009, when Charlotte set up her workshop in Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter. Her photo etched jewellery collections celebrate shared memories and travel; capturing special moments with loved ones and escapes to exotic lands where some of the worlds best loved creatures can be seen. Each image is created from a photograph that is etched into sterling silver, forming a relief pattern of the image on the surface. Each item is handmade in sterling silver, with many oxidised to enhance the delicate details within the image. Many items are also inlaid with 22ct gold or striking black and gold finishes.
Jessica trained in jewellery and enamel at Central School of Art, London. On graduation she set up a studio in her home city of Bristol. Over recent years Jessica has undertaken a sustained period of research into mark-making using non-traditional enamel techniques. Her current studio practice includes the production of both jewellery and larger scale enamel work.
Jessica has developed an approach in which she seeks to create work that moves away from traditional enamel practice in order to achieve a more ambiguous and expressive material quality. Both her jewellery and her larger scale work, she strives to obtain a tactile delicacy whilst making pieces that reward the wearer’s close attention with an intricate and detailed surface.
