JEWELLERY

After studying Textiles at Norwich School of Art and Design (NUA), Abbie turned to the discipline of silversmithing while backpacking through New Zealand. She became intrigued by a number of artists working in precious metals. The process and tools of this ancient craft had instant appeal for her. There is a thread of rebellion against the perfectly polished, which keeps her curious, creating jewellery with a modern, contemporary edge.

Her current collection embraces different techniques and materials – lace textured and oxidised silver, precious gold detailing, rivets and coloured Plexiglass, result in a body of work where traditional techniques meet a thoroughly modern aesthetic.
