Jewellery

We believe jewellery should be extraordinarily made and insouciantly compliment its wearer. Our makers are masters of their materials with a spirited spin. Choose a hand-made piece to wear from jewellers who play with acrylic, porcelain and precious metals.


Mizuki Takahashi’s enamel jewellery are etched in black scraffito and hung on long pendants to create an elegant understatement.

Marlene McKibbin’s bangles and earrings are made from clear acrylic and infused with colour that catch light and reflect it on its wearer.

Uncomplicated and satisfying, Syann van Niftrik’s organic shapes in beaten silver draw freely from the environment in an intuitive and elemental way.

‘I began making collectors toys about fifteen years ago, from a studio at Artsway (in the New Forest) shortly after graduating in Textile Art from Winchester. I exhibit regularly and my work is held by private collections in this country and abroad. Alongside working at The Arts University at Bournemouth, I make automata to public and private commission. I am currently studying for a Masters in Sequential Design at the University of Brighton.’

We are so thrilled to have work by new maker, Tanja Malo.

Tanja studied jewellery in Japan, was brought up in rural Sweden with roots in Finnish Lapland. She uses found kimono prints, hemp, nettle and raw silk from Nepalese and Laotian mountain farms, handmade silver from Sweden, both old and new Liberty of London fabric… exquisite!

‘I started collecting fabrics when I first moved to Japan in the late 90’s, and continued during many journeys throughout the Far East in the ten years that followed. The gathering and learning about materials from the people who produced and worked with them everyday led to ideas of how to use the smallest piece of fabric, threads on factory floors, and make it into something beautiful and valuable. In the process, my form of jewellery making was found: preserving what might have otherwise been lost.

These pieces are made out of these found kimono prints, odd pieces from small antique stores in border towns, hemp, nettle and raw silk from Nepalese and Laotian mountain farms, handmade silver from Sweden, both old and new Liberty of London fabric.
