Biography:

Stella Campion works in gold and silver, specialising in the techniques of chasing and repousse to create relief designs on metal. Stella frequently draws on nature for inspiration using themes of bird, insect and plant life which are particularly effective when applied to hollowware – bowls, beakers and jugs, or flatter surfaces such as plates and decorative plaques. Richly textured gold surfaces set with coloured stones feature in Stella Campion’s jewellery, a combination of design and making skills ensure a stunning and appropriate piece for every occasion.
