My jewellery explores space and movement around the wearers body.
Contrasting colour and texture fascinates me, and I seek to manipulate this by working with silver, oxidised silver, 18ct yellow gold, and semi-precious stones such as garnet, peridot and citrine. Hammered wire is often contrasted against smooth cupped sheet silver, and 18ct yellow gold will be found scattered amongst oxidised silver links.
Movement, line, light and space are all important aspects which inform the work of Amy Louise Young. Capturing the fleeting, sporadic moments found during the motion of flight was the major inspiration behind her current collection.
Using techniques such as forging, stone setting and other jewellery making skills, she combines silver with non-precious materials such as resin and polypropylene, making the pieces not only unique but fun to wear.
Together over the years, husband and wife team have designed and produced a wide variety of hand made crafts. These have ranged from large wooden items such as garden furniture, dolls houses to smaller items such as clocks and candle holders.
Our speciality is designing and hand crafting jewellery boxes, ring and trinket boxes and medium sized memory boxes. All are made from reclaimed timber including oak, beech and mahogany. Marquetry veneers are used to decorate diamond and hexagonal shaped boxes.
Angela is an experimental jewellery designer challenging the traditional thought that all jewellery must be made from precious metals. She uses salt crystals, a natural product but not one usually associated with jewellery and together with resin and silver she transforms it into something that you want to wear and treasure.
Angela's plan is to keep developing ideas and to create an eclectic range of home and tableware that is fun, attractive and nostalgic.
