A fascination for illusion, function and geometric forms enables Katie Snow to create little ‘Pockets of Intrigue’ enticing the viewer to take a closer look. These small, wearable containers conceal treasures of the owner’s desire. She takes photographs of buildings and skylines which are used to manipulate shapes in computer design software, enabling me to extract sections for further development.
Each piece is individually created from silver, carefully constructed into oblique 3D forms. Tiny parts of detail are pierced out of the sheets creating ‘little windows’, enabling the viewer to catch a glimpse inside or straight through the container.
The functional wearables are sleek and geometric, suitable for the male and female wearer. Complementing these is a range of smaller commercial pieces keeping the same aesthetic to form an expanding elegant collection.
What could be concealed in your pocket? A love note, money, medication….? A secret only the wearer will know…
Amanda Denison specialises in Contemporary Art Jewellery. She produces bespoke and limited edition collections of brooches and necklaces. Not for the faint-hearted, these are large statement pieces for the wearer who likes to be noticed.
Each piece is inspired by the traces left behind through decay, dilapidation and dereliction. Layers of peeling paint, rust on railings, corrugated iron sheds are all sources of inspiration. Eroded and changing forms, whether it be through the forces of man or nature, leave behind fragments of what once existed. Amanda Denison finds beauty in these chaotic unplanned marks which are the inspiration behind her jewellery.
She takes traditional jewellery making techniques and uses them in unconventional ways so they are reinvented for the twenty first century. She works in mixed metals and incorporates enamels, perforations and punched surface textures to produce her compelling pieces. Each of her brooches is a mini work of art.
Make sure you turn them over, for the back of each piece is as important as the front and each piece reveals hidden surprises known only to the wearer.
Anna Faine Jewellery is a handmade collection of distinctive, bespoke pieces, designed to celebrate the curious and individual. Each piece is created using precious metals and gemstones to ensure each item tells its own unique story. The primary creative inspiration for her Jewellery comes from both the absurdity and humour of life, and her love of craftsmanship and detail. Anna has always been strongly influenced by the work of Lewis Carroll and Alice in Wonderland, the idea of turning the ordinary into the extraordinary with humour and a genuine search for understanding the world around us. The story has always been the key to how she approaches her work, creating pieces which have many layers of detail and hopefully communicate a personal resonance to the wearer.
Anna.M is contemporary jewellery designer based in London.
The aesthetics of Anna’s designs are about subtle organic shapes paired with modern elegance. She is fascinated by nature, and in particular the microflora and the beauty of small intricate organisms living in symbiotic clusters. Anna’s aim is to reveal the secret allure of micro and macroscopic landscapes and to translate them into jewellery. She uses a variety of pearls, precious and semi-precious stones to mirror the natural diversity of shapes and colours derived from her inspiration.
Anna experiments extensively with different techniques and materials to create innovative textures and forms. She is breaking traditions of stone setting. Instead of using the popular prong or bezel settings, She frames stones and pearls in metal compressed at great pressure. The result is slightly different each time, making each piece unique.
