Featured Designer: Silke Espinet

silke espinet jewellery

Taking inspiration from the beauty of art and opera, but also nature and Tai Chi, Silke designs jewellery and artefacts in silver and gold as well as base metals. Some work is enamelled, photo etched,  sculptured or cast.  Her pieces are bold, beautifully crafted and fun.

Silke graduated from Silversmithing and Jewellery Design at the Sir John Cass Department of Art, Media and Design (LMU) in 2012. She exhibited her work at the London Metropolitan University’s summer show as well as New Designers 2012.

Her graduate collection won First Prize for Body of Work from The Goldsmiths’ Company, as well as awards from the British Jewellery Association and H.S. Walsh & Sons Ltd.  The 18 carat gold Palette Ring design also won her a student Bursary from The Goldsmiths’ Company in 2012.

Silke has been exhibiting at Designer Crafts at the Mall exhibition in January 2013 and 2014 and won a Distinction Award.  Her hinged and gilded Madame Butterfly Ring was displayed at the annual Goldsmiths’ Craft and Design Council awards exhibition last year.
