Graduating from Edinburgh College of Art as a mature student in 2012, award winning artist jeweller, Eleanor Symms, has exhibited in the UK and internationally and has work in a number of public and private collections.Eleanor’s work derives from a fascination with different types of materials, especially reclaimed plastics, which she finds and scavenges for use in her work. Often, her starting point will be the shape, colour or texture of something she has found; sea-worn plastics from the beach or scraps of waste sheet materials, which would otherwise be discarded.Aiming to make jewellery which is beautiful and intriguing, rather than purely decorative, she wants her work to question the nature of ‘preciousness’ and disposability.
