I'm Cara! the Arty Jeweller
Originally trained in Fine Art, and spending many years working in the arts education and gallery sector. I took time out to raise my children and re over from a serious illness.
I decided to refocus my skills and retrain in Contemporary Craft and Jewellery Design. I directed my passion for sculpture and painting into creating one off pieces off art, making smaller wearable pieces.
Through sketchbook work and materials experimentation, I design and craft the pieces, taking inspiration from the places I have lived and landscapes I visit.
I am obsessed with colour and texture and I am always trying to replicate aged patinas and surfaces through manipulating metal, glass enamels and textiles. I try to combine the urban and the natural together, through use of traditional and non traditional jewellery making processes and materials.
Where possible I use recycled materials and packaging and raise awareness of sea life and nature conservation through some of my Special Collections.
I love nothing more than creating custom creations, so if this is something you would like to discuss please email me directly at: email@example.com
