Biography:

Elaine Cox produces jewellery of an organic sculptural quality with richly textured surfaces. Working primarily in silver and gold her work explores contrasts; rough with smooth, matt with burnished, light with dark and precious with non-precious. The use of unpolished minerals maintains a link with, and celebrates, the material's origins. Pieces are either one-off, limited edition or made to commission.
