Exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews with makers, designers and artists – from what inspires them to how they create their work.

  • Spotlight on: Eloise Kramer

    Peaches. Have you ever seen a jewellery collection based on peaches? Well, you have now. When I met Eloise Kramer, she’d been selected as one of IJL’s Bright Young Gems. Her work is so creative and I love the playful aspect of it.  Her first collection’s fantastic because it nods to peaches, whilst not all […]

  • Spotlight on: Rachel Butlin

    I discovered Rachel on Instagram, where her bold, colourful designs just shine out of the screen.  They really are very different and open to interpretation (I swear that a pair of her studs remind me of tennis balls!). And so fun too! When you look at her amazing work, see if you can guess which […]

  • Spotlight on: Hannah Blackwood

    I first saw Hannah’s incredible jewellery at IJL – one of the UK’s biggest trade jewellery events – where she’d been selected as a future designer to watch. I just love how she uses the concept of time in her jewellery – something so precious to us all.  And the amount of detail – especially […]

  • Spotlight on: Ruth Tomlinson

    Now, I’ve got to admit, I’m totally fan-girling over today’s Spotlight interview!  Ruth Tomlinson’s absolutely gorgeous designs first caught my eye a couple of years ago, and I’ve been an avid fan ever since – so I still can’t believe she agreed to be interviewed on The Jewellery Spot! I think it’s that combination of […]

  • Spotlight on: Jordan Furze

    Brexit… and jewellery?! I bet that’s two words you never thought would go together. But Brexit is one of the things that’s inspired Jordan Furze’s work. Along with mushrooms. I bumped into the recent Birmingham School of Jewellery graduate at International Jewellery London and was immediately struck by his passion for jewellery and politics. Find […]

  • Spotlight on: Poppy Norton

    Strong and geometric.  Poppy Norton’s designs leapt off the screen the minute I first saw them. The bold pieces she creates are just fantastic. And the simple, but clever way she styles them really works. Isn’t it great how she talks about her creations as ‘like her children’?!  And how she thinks of jewellery as inclusive. […]

  • Spotlight on: Rebecca Burt

    Organic, yet geometric. I was drawn to Rebecca Burt’s beautiful pieces online because I felt they were a beautiful contradiction.  Like all the best contradictions – sweet and sour and salted caramel – I love the combination of geometric shapes in organic forms.   So I was so happy that Rebecca agreed to tell her story […]

  • Spotlight on: Meg Wachs

    I’m really excited to say that The Jewellery Spot has gone international for the first time! Jewellery Artist Meg Wachs is based in Houston, Texas and Artist in Resident at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft.  I just love how she thinks of jewellery as the visual exclamation mark on an outfit! What a fabulous […]

  • Spotlight on: Elsiem Jewellery

    When I first spotted Elsiem Jewellery online, I loved the striking geometric forms of the designs, and I knew I had to get them on The Jewellery Spot. I wasn’t disappointed.  It’s fascinating how Lorraine Hitt (the name behind the brand) completely managed to pivot her career from one aspect of design (interiors) into another.  […]

  • Spotlight on: Jacqueline Ryan

    I discovered Jacqueline Ryan’s exquisite work on Instagram. Her work just shone out of the screen for their texture and colour.  You can see how she’s so heavily influenced by nature and plants. And it’s not just me that thinks her jewellery is beautiful. Whenever I’ve shared photos of her work on Instagram stories they’ve […]
