Emma lives in Hove near Brighton, a stone’s throw away from the sea. She first developed an interest in jewellery as a way of channelling the inspiration she found around her, on the beach and in the surrounding countryside.
Emma’s work takes images she finds in nature; seaweed, razor clams and shells. She then abstracts them, creating random designs that play with asymmetry and scale. Emma works with stones but keeps them raw and naturally formed, combining them with silver to give an organic and dramatic effect. The colour palette mostly ranges across blues and greens by using labradorite, chrysoprase, sapphires, moonstone, turquoise, aventurine and apatite.
What started as a hobby swiftly became a vocation; after a course at Brighton College in 2005, she followed up with work experience. Since then demand for her jewellery has grown by word of mouth and from exhibitions at Brighton & Hove Open Houses during Brighton Festival and at The Logan Studios in Yorkshire. The Open Houses have also bee a great showcase for new work, both in May and at Christmas.
Please contact Emma directly if you have specific requirements regarding chain length or any other adaptation to a piece.
“I’m really fussy about jewellery and what Emma made me suited me perfectly. She just got it right. She has a very keen eye for what works for women and the bracelet I ordered was beautifully made and detailed but not at all fussy.”
“I love Emma’s work; I keep on buying it for friends and then end up keeping it. I like the way she is never afraid to be experimental and different. I also like that I know I am never going to see anyone else wearing the same thing as me. Emma’s jewellery is properly individual.”
“Emma understands that for women, jewellery is so much more than precious metal, it symbolises momentous moments in their lives and celebrates them. Emma’s jewellery is the opposite of throwaway, it is forever.”
