Sandra Reeves’s copper sculptures of natural forms are the result of extensive experimentation and time spent developing techniques within the specialist field of chasing and repousse. Sandra aims to turn the flat illustrative images in her mind’s eye into three dimensional works and has trained alongside renowned Italian chasing and repousse master – Fabrizio Acquafresca.

Emily Wright makes cotemporary Kanzashi hair wear and brooches inspired by the traditional Japanese designs. All her pieces are hand-folded from small squares of silk (some sourced from vintage kimonos) in a technique akin to origami. Her work, which is strongly influenced by the Japanese sense of seasonality and colour, make fantastic accessories for occasions such as weddings.

A student in her third year at Brighton University, Emma Branthas made collections of jewellery from mixed materials including silver, acrylic, mild steel and semi precious gemstones. The collections were inspired by a story about reincarnation told to her by her grandmother when she was a child. Emma has reinterpreted the images and symbolism evoked by the story along with photos belonging to her grandmother to create beautifully layered and ephemeral pieces.
