My collection of jewellery is inspired by a personal love for historical repeat pattern design, particularly floral. I reference floral architectural carvings to provide a link between two and three dimensional ornamentation. I explore aspects of the drawn line, the past and 'vintage' in my work.
My jewellery is made from carved and stained faux ivory, silver gilt, 18ct gold, antique cut semi-precious stones, beads and pearls. Prices range from £30 -£1200
I work in steel and create unique sculptures of animals and abstract pieces. Inspiration is drawn from nature, and a fascination for movement, fluidity, lightness and texture. Humour also plays an important part in the creation process, which hopefully is revealed in my work. For me, metal has still an element of surprise and adaptability is crucial. Scale can vary from small items to life-size artwork.
Alex has a very different view of the world, informed by many years creating theatrical devices intended to deceive.
There is a dramatic element to his work enhanced by the use of a wide variety of media, frequently combining a diversity of materials. Leather may be allied with gold leaf, ink with aluminium, flotsam and architectural salvage with acrylic colours.
Combining skills in metalwork with a variety of textile techniques, Alexandra creates contemporary jewellery pieces inspired by structures in nature.

My work aspires to elevate value in materials and techniques. Focus for work is driven between pattern and material explorations. I believe there are no boundaries in jewellery, no more the 'must haves' of precious metals and jewels.
