Helen’s jewellery is inspired by illustration and is based on natural themes such as birds and trees, produced in a distinctively quirky style that is instantly recognisable.
‘I am particularly interested in the use of pattern and naïve folklore in illustration and seek to combine these ideas in my jewellery.’
After graduating from the University of Derby with a design degree in 2004, Helen knew that her real passion was to make jewellery, and set about learning how to do that.
Today, working from her home studio in Nottingham, Helen creates her jewellery from cutting and stamping silver sheet and wire. The collection is mainly in silver, with accents of copper and brass for colour and texture. Helen uses detailed pattern effectively to ‘draw’ on the surface of the silver, using techniques such as stamping and oxidising, creating an individual look and feel to the jewellery.
