Annabel Eley

Designer

The Goldsmiths Company

Biography:

Bold juxtapositions of pattern, texture, and contrasting coloured precious metals run through my latest pieces. Design sources tend to originate in the everyday world around me, however the actual process of making often presents new ideas and directions. Both my larger scale sculptures, and my paintings inform my jewellery, and vice versa.

Specialist Techniques:

Fabrication Paper impressing Fused inlay Form pressing Carving
