Kathryn Hinton's work focuses on creating jewellery and silverware using digital technology to emulate traditional tooling in the process of making.
Kathryn Williamson jewellery evolved from an interest in the textural quality of silver and the simple sculptural shapes of found objects.Other influences are inspired by Pittenweem beach pebble pottery finds. The seemingly unconnected nature of the pattern has led to the reignition of an interest in a ecletic array of pattern from japanese origami to 70s coffee sets.
These elements are currently being explored in silver through rolled textural surfaces , photoetching and
combining this with enamel, paper / resin and beach pebbles.,
stripykat was created to supply a grateful world with fun, original and unique handmade bags and accessories. Each item is designed and lovingly made by Katie - the accessory mad girl from Scotland. Having studied Textile and Fashion Design at University and been a director of an independent interior design company, I have been able to continue my passion and flair for design and fabrics with stripykat.

I make individually crafted mosaics, using primarily recycled materials. These include decorative mirrors and pictures, kitchen or bathroom splashbacks and garden ornaments (such as bird baths, signs and stepping stones. Flowers feature in many of the mosaics that I make, which is inspired by my love of my garden.
Interaction + versatility are two of the most important aspects of my work. i like the wearer to be able to play with my jewellery creating new pieces. Setting magnets within the resin provides a way of changing each piece easily.
Ring tops can be swapped, bangles stick together, neckpieces interconnect…
Sense of place and invisible energy was the main inspiration for my work. A series of site specific installations have been developed for Tate St Ives 2006 and York St Mary’s Church 2007 and 2008.
The appropriate techniques were chosen for each concept. The glass is the material to present the quality of transience in our lives.
