On International Women’s day, we thought we would introduce some of the talented women jewellers we have on Lovedazzle. In fact 59 of the 62 designers on lovedazzle are women, so let’s celebrate the creativity of these amazing women behind the jewellery.
Melanie is the designer, jeweller and founder of Kokkino. She creates timelessly elegant pieces of jewellery that elevate your everyday, bringing colour, sparkle and joy. Vitreous enamels and gold-plating are used to add colour.
Naomi has been making jewellery since she was 14 and has always designed as she works, allowing the making process to inspire the final piece. Many of her designs use leaves, plants and feathers to imprint natural textures on silver.
Lynne creates colourful, sculptural jewellery and objects, thoughtfully designed and made to bring colour and joy into your life. Her pieces range from accessible everyday jewellery, collectable contemporary craft pieces to large scale interior installations.
The circle is forever the starting point for each of Joanne jewellery designs. Ancient chain maille patterns are a constant inspiration; experimenting with the scale, weight, form and texture of the chains, making necklaces, bracelets and earrings which are voluminous yet light, tactile and extremely durable.
South Korean born jeweller Misun Won is inspired by Korean traditional wrapping cloth ‘Jogakbo’ and its scientific interpretation with fractal geometry. She mainly uses silver, Keumboo (23.5ct gold foil), Korean braided cord and precious/semi-precious stones.
Each of Sue’s pieces are handmade from 100% recycled acrylic and are made using real flowers and leaves. Sue has created her own unique process to encapsulate the flowers. She collects, drys and presses them to create the designs, meaning each piece is unique.
Self-taught jeweller Kate, makes feminine, ethereal jewellery using fine beading and chain work techniques. The subtle, harmonious shapes of Kate’s beaded designs take their cue from natural forms and textures, and incorporate her love of beautiful gemstones.
Kathie Murphy set up her studio 30 years ago and since then has specialised in working with polyester resin, exploring the possibilities of this material. Kathie also has two books published by A&C Black, Resin Jewellery 2001 and Design and make non-precious jewellery 2009.
