Doing it for themselves

We are looking at designer makers today and more specifically jewellers. As they need light many of our makers are up steep stairs but it really is worth the climb!

Its really interesting to learn what inspires our makers for Kate Smith it is her enjoyment of the outdoors and what nature hols. A great observer her jewellery is full of texture and movement and the tinier details of plants and flowers.


Fluid lines. sharp architecture and the finest gems can be found in the work of Rhiannon Lewis. Working to commission as well as developing new collections do not miss her latest clean designs.


Graceful shapes, texture and most importantly a great sense of balance are what Becca Williams brings to her work. Every piece has a story, a visit to her studio will reveal both her inspiration and a fantastic view!


Award winning designer Collette Waudby uses motifs from her travels and history combined with the technical exploration of archaic metal forging and forming techniques. Join her in Branston Court this year where you can stamp your own initials and words on to unique silver forms (from £5).

We hope you enjoy exploring the websites of these fantastic crafts people and maybe you will notice another connection – there seems to be an awful lot of tea drunk by this lot!
