Dee Barnes works spontaneously as her jewellery stems from original paintings. Multiple mediums are used including card, resin, acrylics, gold, silver and copper leaf, sterling silver and pewter. Organic shapes are cut from the paintings which are then mounted and covered in layers of resin. Dee enjoys mixing odd, uneven shapes that ultimately create a balanced look and endeavours to emulate real and semi-precious gemstones by layering colour with texture.
Inspired by individuality, worldwide travels and a passion for colour, Marie Curtis designs and handcrafts distinctive precious metal jewellery that blends resin, commissioned artwork or silver, gold and copper leaf. Each piece of jewellery is created to be worn as a piece of art - the pieces are bold, contemporary and handmade in Bath.
Textile art and designer textiles inspired by nature and the natural environment. Images are hand painted or printed onto silk. Quilting, the use of free machine and hand embroidery creates texture and raised areas in relief and provides the opportunity to express an appreciation for the beauty of texture, forms and patterns in nature. The discord between the smooth, lustrous silk and my subject matter produces an irresistible tactile quality.
Emma creates large pieces of sculptural jewellery which then inform smaller more wearable items which are made in precious metals. Her work explores structural forms, negative space and thickness of line, using bold yet simple shapes riveted together in contrast to more intricate, abstract elements, creating a sense of depth. Her work is handmade, yet has an industrial feel to it.
Working with different techniques, Hendrike strives for well-designed pieces, mostly abstract, with an element of the unexpected: the off-centre, the unequal, non-matching and the odd. The pieces are outcomes of a design process that starts with a drawing, then a transfer onto the human body, is then altered and finally translated into materials. The pieces fully come to life when seen worn on the human body.
