Anne V Massey Jewellery

Precious Jewellery

I have been making jewellery in Hove since 2002. Being close to the sea and the beautiful South Downs helps recharge my creative batteries. My work has always been about form; I have always loved natural objects such as shells, seedpods and marine invertebrates. Over the years they have become embedded in my imagination, where they are abstracted into simple, timeless forms such as spirals and helices. The other most important aspect of my work is hand-making. The process of creating a three-dimensional form from flat sheet by use of a hammer is compelling in its immediacy and intimacy. It creates a highly personal connection with the work. I tend to design with a hammer in my hand rather than on paper. The technique I use is anticlastic raising, which creates light, strong forms from metal sheet. Most of my work is made from recycled silver.
