Kathryn Williamson jewellery is inspired by a sense of personal treasure trove- found objects and fragments of pottery from beach walks around the Fife coast. 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 or punched textural surfaces, photoetching, combining this with enamel, paper / resin, laser etched and cut acrylic and found beach pebbles.
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.
