This
February Shoreham Art Gallery are highlighting the work of four fabulous Jewellers
at the Gallery. Each artist brings their individual style with a variety of
materials.




We
asked them “
What has inspired your latest jewellery
pieces”
and they
have been giving some insight into how the work has been created for this
exhibition.

Bridgland  




My
jewellery is inspired by the glass itself which is then fused together in a
kiln. Dichroic glass, which is glass with thin coating of metal, can be capped
with a clear layer, which makes the piece sparkle, or left uncapped for a
duller metallic look.




I
have created a range of sophisticated iridescent pendants and earrings
reflecting the brightness of spring emerging after winter, alongside some
pieces which are designed for less formal wear.




Pendants that come with a chain are supplied with a
Sterling Silver 18? Belcher chain. Earrings all have sterling silver findings.

Over the past year I have made
silver jewellery, which incorporates semi precious stones, pearls and beads. My
inspiration comes from the colour, cut and size of the stones or beads. I
roller texture using real leaves and flowers, some of which I have dried. My
latest pieces are of a bramble leaf with a rose cut, green tourmaline, a silver
ring made from a cast horseshoe nail with a green tourmaline stone and a silver
turtle with a blue agate as the shell.

2020 proved to be an interesting year but that did not stop me from
creating three very different collections. 




The year began with Luutia and Continuum. Luutia is very much about
combining organic forms with a Brutalist aesthetic and was inspired by the
casting of silver into dry spaghetti - it turned out to be the most popular of
the new collections. Continuum leans more towards the delicacy of the
early Mid-Century Modern and came about from studying the designs of Barbara
Hulanicki and her (and my) love of Celtic imagery and continuous knotwork.




As the year progressed I finally created Darricarrere, another
collection of cast silver rings and pendants set with colourful gemstones that
I cut and polished myself.  This collection attempts to emulate the
amazing textured 3D Dalle de Verre’s stained glass windows of the late Roger
Darricarrere. 




2021 is likely to see new collections inspired by sacred geometry and
the metaphysical quality of gemstones.

One of my creative passions are the
folds and twists of leaves, vines, petals. For this reason, with my jewellery I
love wire work and mixing colours together. Usually this means mixing gemstones
and using the wire to create a framework for them, but I decided to go against
my usual trend and just work with wire, so here I have mixed metals instead,
copper and silver. They are both very delicate, subtle colours, which I hope to
produce jewellery that flows and is pleasing to the eye.
