Collect_ive:
A New Generation of British Art Jewellers

Eight contemporary British jewellers have come together to exhibit at the 11th edition of the prestigious SIERAAD International Jewellery Art Fair in Amsterdam from 1st – 4th November. Each with their own style, voice and specialism, Collect_ive aims to promote British art jewellery to a wider audience. They are Farrah Al-Dujaili, Laura Bradshaw-Heap, Melanie Codarin, Katie Lees, Yu-Ping Lin, Grace Page, Natalie Smith and Anna Wales. Together they use a variety of mediums and subjects within their practices to question assumptions about jewellery itself and to raise questions and communicate thoughts about the world around them. From transient jewellery created in sugar evocative of apocalyptic landscapes, to visually powerful felt and silver jewellery pieces that are pleasingly tactile, to tongue-in-cheek miracle cures saving the world one piece of jewellery at a time!

     

Anna Wales www.annawales.com

My Jewellery is designed to create a powerful visual impact along with an enticing tactility.  It focuses on the combination of felt and silver, or of oxidized silver with polished precious metals arranged to form stark contrasts or subtle transformations throughout a singular piece. 

I aim to ensure each piece is aesthetically distinct, pleasingly tactile, and sensual to wear.
   

Farrah Al-Dujaili www.farrahal-dujaili.blogspot.com

My design methodology revolves around the act of drawing as an intuitive and subconscious process; geometric and organic components ‘grow’ alongside each other to create hybrid forms not overtly floral, but organic and playful.

Fragments are created and later constructed to create the idiosyncratic detailing that appears in my drawings. I work within an intuitive mix of drawing and making that crosses over and intertwines.

I apply drawing materials of pencil, crayons and watercolours to a surface of enamel paint. This gives a material link to my design methodology, enforcing the dialogue between drawing and making.

   

Grace Page www.gracepage.co.uk

Based in Birmingham's famous Jewellery Quarter the work of Dr Grace (aka Grace Page) is inspired by the bold claims and wild exaggerations of Victorian so-called 'Miracle Cures'. From melting polar ice caps and rising sea levels to hangovers and bad hair days there is nothing that Dr Grace jewellery cannot cure.
Combining equal quantities of metalwork and mixed media, along with a smidgen of irony and a healthy dose of tongue-in-cheek humour she creates antidotal accessories - saving the world one piece of jewellery at a time!

   

Katie Lees  www.katieleesjewellery.com

By studying the perhaps incongruous concept of creating finely crafted jewellery from the heavy industrial aesthetic of the shipbuilding history, that has molded the city of Glasgow, I have created a collection of jewellery which encapsulates this industrial landscape.
The language is drawn not only from the pragmatic forms and robust engineering of the ships themselves but also from the remnants of industrial steel sheds, from sheets of rusted steel and dock stanchions of weather washed wood that define the river Clyde along it’s length. These shapes, although austere and cold in their original form, become curiously beautiful objects when condensed.
The industrial aesthetic is not self conscious but prosaic and by studying it through drawing and photographing, I have derived an eclectic body of work, using silver and semi - precious stones, which extracts the essence of these evocative forms.
My work has progressed and developed into more sculptural, complex jewellery still incorporating the hollow form aspects, traditional to my style.

   

Laura Bradshaw Heap  http://www.laura-bradshaw-heap-is.me.uk/

The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitude of mind… If you change your mind, you can change your life.
- William James-
For me, art is about a shared experience, between artist, viewer, participant.

My practice seeks to create a social experience within marginal community groups with little or no experience of the creative arts. For me, the end product is not the jewellery produced by the group.
Rather the producing of jewellery is a means for developing a social experience within the group. It is these social experiences, of which I become a part of, which then inform my work.
 My aim within my work, regardless to its final outcome and form, is to strive towards a complex concept, rooted in theory. Within all my work I aim to portray my concepts with a deliberate simplicity of material and technique, allowing the focus to remain on the why rather then the how a piece has been made.

   

Melanie Codarin  www.melaniecodarin.com

My work is inspired by ‘graphic’ forms, natural and man-made, I modify or even mutate the things I see, and create new contexts for them so they take on a new life, and new perceived meanings for the wearer. I enjoy seeing the narrative organically unfold and the influence that different materials have on the new forms. I have particular preference for wood and its derivatives.

   

Natalie Smith www.natalielsmith.blogspot.co.uk

My work explores the ideas of growth, transformation and disintegration.
I find inspiration in surrealist science fiction, which is rich in atmosphere and imagery. Many of the books describe apocalyptic landscapes and alternate worlds that are on the brink of geographical catastrophes. In these dramatic dreamscapes there are no utopias, emphasis is placed on mental explorations and evocative journeys of the isolated humans.

I create my pieces by combining permanent and temporary materials such as textiles and sugar. I like the pieces to have a constantly changing structure and once completed, begin their transient lives. Depending on how they are cared for they may dissolve in humid conditions, change colour or melt like an ice-lolly on a hot day revealing the materials underneath. The evolution of the work is something that interests me greatly. I do not attempt to try and control what happens to the pieces after they are finished. I like an element of surprise.

   

Yu-Ping Lin  www.yuxiart.com

‘Yu-Ping Lin, a Taiwanese emerging designer maker works with textile and jewellery. ‘

My work is process-based and structurally complex. I am never without a sketchbook where my ideas evolve so she is constantly drawing with brush strokes. The inks sometimes bleed into the Chinese rice paper and at other times they develop into more in-depth ideas and detailed images.  I also practice paper cutting/folding where the ideas of 3D structures originate.

“I do not set out to be a jewellery or fashion designer but as my portfolio developed and I became interested in both elements and aesthetics.”
My work focuses on the notion of Origami and paper art, architectural structures, interaction and seduction of pattern; the original pleasure captured by the structure of organisms inherent in nature.
