Circa 72 Jewellery was created in 2010 and is the creative passion of Glasgow based designer and maker Kary Purvis. Kary takes inspiration from nature, her childhood surroundings and personal treasured memories to create beautiful and unique jewellery. Selecting her materials carefully, Kary works mainly in silver using accents of gold and semi precious stones. Many of the pieces include layers and movement within that create an element of surprise and interest often using hidden cold connections to achieve this effect.
My varied background is mainly in Silversmithing but includes jewellery design and production experience. In my career I have been Self-Employed designing, producing, exhibiting and selling my own work but have also been lucky enough to work as part of a team in three well known and established workshops. I have a wide range of manufacturing skills working in precious metals, from small scale jewellery work to much larger silversmithing projects.
I am a jewellery designer based in Glasgow. I studied at the Glasgow School of art and the Royal College of Art. I love all things architectural and shiny.
I am a jewellery designer based in Glasgow. I am currently working on ranges of jewellery inspired by cities and what they mean to us. How will our future cities look? Do we aspire to live in a beautiful future or continue in amongst restricted high rise buildings and neglected housing scheme? Do we continue to aspire towards western riches and none existent money whilst being the big man's wage slave? Or is there another way?
Kathy Vones creates unique, flamboyant pieces of jewellery which are inspired by the deep sea environment, using clean, simple wire structures, finely textured sheet metal and delicately patterned silicone shapes.
She also constructs light objects from vacuum formed PVC forms adorned with custom dyed nylon and silicone shapes.
Katie explores the perhaps incongruous concept of creating finely crafted jewellery, of silver and semi-precious stones, from the heavy industrial aesthetic of the shipbuilding history that has moulded the city of Glasgow.
Kirsten is a jewellery designer and maker based in Aberdeen. She specialised in using silver and precious or non-precious stones.
Kirstin Brown is a contemporary ceramic artist who experiments with mixed media and also slab and coil builds. She creates non-functional, sculptural pieces of interesting and varied texture. Her work has rugged, earthy appeal, thick-walled with metal parts melting and protruding.
With a passion for architecture and the interstitial spaces created by buildings and other structures, Kirsty Fraser’s jewellery creations boast a strong emphasis on extending beyond traditional approaches to jewellery making.
Over the past couple of years Kym Kinnison Jewellery has had a change of direction and now produces one-off and limited edition re-fashioned vintage jewellery.
