Just arrived in the gallery – new jewellery from Caterina Zucchi – made from lamp worked glass in Italy.
Emma Mogridge makes jewellery inspired by the beauty of the natural landscape. Each hand-made piece is designed to capture a snapshot of nature, for example, the sublime quality of coastal scenery, the shimmering of light over water, or the rippling of long grass in a windswept field. Award winning brooch, Liquid Sun, is inspired by the sun setting at sea. Facets of Light is a unique collection, crafted using specialist techniques and hand-made tools. Emma works with silver to create delicate eye-catching surfaces and combines them with strong geometry to form dynamic jewellery. The collection has an elegant yet bold aesthetic, accentuated by contrasting satin and highly polished finishes. Each piece has a definitive nautical feel, with echoes of ships and portholes, and is designed as a portable/wearable vision of the ocean.
