Kathryn Roberts

Kathryn Roberts
Brecon

Nature and natural forms with underlying asymmetry and balance are becoming increasingly dominant themes in Kathryn’s work. Forms are enhanced with a vast palette of colour and texture. Inspiration inevitably still comes from the material itself - ‘the beauty of working with glass is its infinite possibilities.’ Her work is a reflection on her surroundings and state of mind – they are free, understated but confident with an unrestrained painterly quality.

Koa Jewellery

Koa Jewellery
Vale of Glamorgan

Koa jewellery is designed and handmade in a beautiful seaside village in the Vale of Glamorgan. Every piece is ethically produced using pewter which is completely lead and nickel free. The majority of the jewellery incorporates coloured resin and some features several beads which are carefully selected and also ethically sourced from fair trade suppliers. 

Louise Hall

Louise Hall
Cardiff

Louise Hall works in porcelain to create fragile and delicate hand built vessels. The translucent nature of porcelain creates an ethereal and calming ambience when lit from within. Distinct textures add detail to enhance the illusion of fabric or paper etc. Louise subverts traditional production methods to create distorted, manipulated and beaten forms with imperfect lines, undulating curves and interrupted contours. Joins are not concealed or hidden with colour; they are made to catch the eye and question how they came into existence. Louise is based in Cardiff.

Louise Lovell

Louise Lovell
Monmouthshire

Louise hand stitches her beautiful pieces from vintage fabrics and fabrics she prints herself. She sources images from her own photographs as well as old cards, photographs, seed packets etc. All the fabric pieces are hardened and lacquered for durability. These are put together with flowers and balls which she hand knits on miniature knitting needles, buttons, beads, vintage jewellery, ribbon and chain. Inspiration comes from many sources which all reflect her love of colour - a found piece of fabric, a pattern on a jug, an old photograph or her love of gardening and nature. 

Louise Pringle

Louise Pringle

Eclectic shock jewellery is a breathtaking collection of gorgeous and unique jewellery. Louise Pringle reflects her own style unlike no other, especially in her reinvented vintage jewellery - each piece is a one off with charm bracelets necklaces and brooches made up of vintage pieces of jewellery, unusual charms, heart, vintage earrings, coins, rings, watches and more.

 

Rozie Keogh

Rozie Keogh
Herefordshire

Rozie’s jewellery draws inspiration from historical costume and ceremonial church artefacts. Many of her elaborate pieces contain a narrative, sometimes taken from fairy stories, sometimes from popular culture. The jewellery is designed to be flattering and glamorous but also amusing and challenging. Rosie works mainly in silver embellished with semi-precious stones, Swarovski crystals and pearls. However, no material is ever ruled out and so it is possible to find anything from a butterfly’s wing to doll’s house cutlery in her pieces.
