Joanne aims to create work which is artistic by design and which is tactile and striking. She is inspired by bold colours and repetitive patterns found in nature and hopes to create a sense of fluidity and freedom within her designs.
Silver Contemporary Jewellery inspired by the Scottish coast line.
Using mainly silver and oxidised silver I work with unit construction methods such as chain mail to assemble necklaces, bracelets and rings, giving forms which are three dimensional, light, flexible, tactile and durable. Movement and comfort are important elements in the wearing of these uniquely handmade pieces.
Joanne Timoney is a graduate of Glasgow School of Art with a BA (Hons) in Silversmithing & Jewellery gained in 2002.
My jewellery is essentially inspired by the materials I use and the technique I have established. By compressing the finest gauge of 18ct yellow gold and fine silver wire I create an intriguing solid mesh form. Fusing this wire allows me to achieve interesting 2D and 3D structures. Subsequently designing and handmaking innovative collections of wearable, contemporary jewellery.
Through the themes of repetition, connection, space and contrast, traditional materials; such as silver, 18ct gold and freshwater pearls and conventional jewellery techniques are given a contemporary twist.
