Emily graduated with a BA in Silversmithing, Jewellery & Allied Crafts from Cass department of Art & Design in London in 2004. She set up her practice in Brighton the following year creating distinctive, beautiful jewellery. Emily joined the Sussex Guild in 2008 and shows regularly throughout the year.
The abundance of diversity found in nature drives Emily’s design process, infinitely varied as it is. Focusing on this natural world, especially at a cellular level, inspires the elegance of form found in her jewellery, with each piece finding its own voice within her distinctive style.
Using traditional hand-fabrication techniques and utilising colours of both stone and precious metal Emily draws the eye around the designs, exploring both negative and positive space. She selects unique gem material for each design, working to expose the honesty of the stone – the inclusions and fractures, responding to these innate characteristics rather than neglecting them.
Originally from Cambridge, Emily studied a BA Hons in Silversmithing, Jewellery & Allied Crafts at The Sir John Cass Department of Art & Design in London and now works from her studio in Sheffield exhibiting her work both nationally and internationally.
