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.
Angus and Mack is a small furniture making company based on the outskirts of Edinburgh specialising in bespoke fine furniture and carpentry. Our work encompasses everything from public sculpture to children's seating. We also mill and dry all our own locally sourced hardwoods.
Angus Open Studios started in 2011 and studios around the area were open from 26th - 30th May. A website and a directory were designed and 6,000 copies of the directory were distributed. 53 artists and craftsmen joined as members and more are joining for 2012.
I make a selection of handmade jewellery, mostly one-off pieces with some limited production earrings. A variety of materials are used in my work including gold, silver, copper, slate, enamel and mother of pearl. The slate is hand cut and shaped with silver or mother of pearl inlaid into some pieces. I enamel on silver and copper using dry powder enamel. Many layers of enamel are built up in-between firings. The enamel is then rubbed back with a carborundrum stone to reveal colours and patterns underneath.
I make contemporary jewellery in predominately precious materials. My influences include japanese textiles and architecture and I use enamel, gemstones, paper, felt, porcelain and gold leaf to create contrasting colour.
Anna Nichols creatively designs and makes fine furniture to the highest standards of craftsmanship by commission, using modern and traditional cabinet making techniques.
Anna can work to a brief or discuss designs and ideas that have not yet been set. Although she works in hardwoods, she is also open to designing with other materials in mind, for example glass and metals. The look of her furniture is elegant and stylish working with curves with her inspiration drawn from nature, and how humans interact with objects around them.
Anna is also happy to work with Interior Designers and Architects, and is fully 2D/3D CAD proficient.
