Judith Brown Jewellery
Non Precious Jewellery
I use fine silver wire to create my jewellery, using wrapping, twisting and stitching techniques developed from my degree in Embroidery to create my intricate, elegant jewellery. I use glass beads for colour and texture in my designs. Inspirations include historical dress, embroidered texture and most recently nature. This has become the greatest influence on my work over the 'drawing' with wire on a larger scale as a response to the wild flowers I was surrounded with on my many walks around the Staffordshire Moorlands where I live. These wire drawings have in turn influenced my jewellery designs and the two sides of my work are now naturally interconnected. I've been making jewellery since 2004 and work from my studio in Leek on the edge of the Peak District, where I am able to welcome visitors and hold workshops too.
