hello terry is the creation of Claire Shepherd, who designs and makes jewellery from her studio in Brighton. Her Handmade designs have been described as modern and quirky. Claire loves working with strong pastel colour combinations, shape and pattern. The speckles and splatters that feature heavily in her work have become a signature in her designs.
The handmade process is reflected in the aesthetic of the jewellery that Claire lovingly crafts one at a time, this process means that all markings and patterns are different from each other giving you a unique piece of jewellery to wear.
All necklaces feature a bead that allows you to vary the length you wear it, the polymer clay material is incredibly lightweight, ideal for earrings and pendant necklaces. The earrings are backed with a silver plated post and a butterfly fastener.
MayaH jewellery is designed and hand made, by Icelandic designer/maker Maya Helgadottir in her studio in Brighton. Maya studied 3D materials practice at the University of Brighton, specialising in metals and ceramics. The love of making and experimentation with materials is what drives Maya's designs, drawing on inspiration from nature, travel and everyday environment.
Nature provides the inspiration and motivation for most of Anette’s work, which is all hand made and mainly in silver. The essence of her style lies in the simple Scandinavian designs, and the way in which the wearer is invited to engage with the product itself – Jewellery is not only to adorn. It has to be tactile too.
Anette grew up in Northern Sweden. Today she lives in East Sussex."
Tanja’s work focuses on individual silver and gold jewellery with unusual gemstones, such as rough diamonds, dendrite quartzes and a range of opals. The often structural pieces are lightened by the vibrant colour of the gemstones and the fine gold Kumboo.
Tanja exhibits worldwide including the New York Now Fair, V&A London, Inhorgenta Munich and many European Countries. She has also been showing the prestigious Goldsmiths Fair in London for the last few years.
