Biography:

Harriet has an extensive range of enamelled jewellery, which is set on silver with gold, or semi-precious bead rivets. The shapes are bold and stylised, but the enamels blend subtly together creating a rich depth of colour. Her collection also includes a range of necklaces incorporating semi precious beads with hand made silver and enamel beads.  Harriet's work draws itnspiration from natural forms, the Art Deco period and from constant observation of her surroundings. Major pieces have included the Jubilee (1977) hair comb, which was exhibited at the recent ‘Celebration’ exhibition at Goldsmiths’ Hall and a necklace of amber and other media made for the Designer Jewellers’ Group millennium exhibition. Other recent projects include the creation of a half dozen set of erotic silver spoons with gold decoration, each based on a differing aspect of the female form. Harriet works to commission as well as showing at exhibitions and in galleries. She has been teaching jewellery in Bristol for nearly 20 years. Harriet is a member of the Designer Jewellers Group and exhibits annually at The Barbican in London as well as showing regularly at Art in Action.
