Judith Brown has been making jewellery since 2004, when she began hand stitching with wire; this technique was inspired by her studies of Embroidery at Manchester Metropolitan University. Since then her techniques have become even more refined and she has developed collections of jewellery which have an elegant, nostalgic feel, and some designs give new life to forgotten vintage haberdashery.
Her latest collections are inspired by Art Deco shapes and colours for her Geometric collection. Other collections such as Nostalgic Opulence are inspired by historic dress, portraits and jewellery from museum collections, the result is a collection which includes pieces reminiscent of Edwardian and Victorian jewellery which are nostalgic yet appeal to the modern eye. These pieces are made with very fine silver wire in a variety of finishes including bright silver and oxidised silver, which complements and highlights the subtle tones of the glass beads carefully selected to feature in these collections.
Her jewellery is exhibited and sold around the UK in galleries and shops including the British Museum. Judith works from her studio above a quirky café in the market town of Leek, Staffordshire.
