Silverspangle by Tracey Burns

Tracey Burns was born in the North East of England, where she grew up on a farm and still lives by the coast.
She spent many years studying, travelling and trying all sorts of jobs, whilst maintaining an interest in making jewellery.
She has driven a bus, worked in factories and been an Au Pair in America, before she settled down to her teaching career. Tracey taught Textiles for 14 years, but continued to study silversmithing at night School and has become proficiently skilled now to realise her career dreams of becoming a professional Jewellery Designer/Maker.
Tracey loves working with silver, copper and brass, soldering, etching, stamping, riveting, setting stones and experimenting with mixing all these techniques. She likes developing her skill set and trying new techniques.
All Tracey’s jewellery is designed and made just by Tracey, so it is all unique. Although she sometimes makes a few of the same type of design, they can never be identical.
Tracey is currently developing a range of animals and birds. 

Lisa Marsella Handpainted Jewellery

Lisa has a background in textiles and studied for her degree at London College of Fashion.  She worked as a textiles designer before discovering anodised aluminium and launching her career as a jeweller.  Her work can be found in many galleries and independent retailers throughout the UK.Lisa has a passion for colour and design which is reflected in her work.  Working with anodised aluminium allows her to be very creative and produce original, vibrant, colourful pieces.   Each stunning piece is one of a kind. Lisa hand paints unsealed anodised aluminium with high quality aluminium inks before submerging the metal in hot dye baths to create interesting variations of colours and prints.  The metal is then steamed which permanently seals the colour.  Each piece is hand made in her studio where all designs are pierced then formed, filed, polished and constructed to a very high standard. Lisa works with 1mm thick aluminium to create luxuriously smooth highly polished pieces.  All chains, earring hooks and studs are Sterling Silver and all jewellery is supplied in branded boxes.  Pendants can be supplied on 16”, 18” or 20” chains.

Something Precious Porcelain Jewellery Designed by Amanda Mudge 

Something Precious was inspired by my desire to fuse the many different passions and beliefs in my life: my passion to be creative in ceramics; my belief that all women should know what real beauty is; my passion to do something about the injustice of women and children forced into prostitution and the sex industry and my Christian beliefs which infuse every aspect of my life.  One day I looked at a piece of jewellery I had made and thought about the contrast of my life and those sold into a life of prostitution.  I choose how I want to live and what I wear, choose my jewellery and have jewellery to match different outfits. Their lives do not involve choice, only control and abuse.  I realised that as part of designing and creating jewellery I could also raise awareness and make a difference for these women.  It feels like a drop in the ocean, but I believe many small drops make the ocean and I know I am not alone in my desire to change such injustice in the world.
