Enchantment ExhibitionWelcome to our new exhibition of jewellery inspired by the rich textures found within the flora and fauna of our world. Intricate details from the feathers of birds and petals of plants are patiently replicated in precious metals. Textural studies from turtle shells, tree bark and rock formations are translated in to silver and gold and embellished with semi-precious stones and diamonds.

Victoria Walker Daffodil kinetic pendant enchantment bristol exhibition

Victoria Walker

Specialising in fine, kinetic jewellery, Victoria’s work is inspired by the beauty of natural forms; her signature botanical lockets featuring miniature articulated flowers that gently emerge and unfold from within. These moving designs are inspired by the sentimental nature of lockets, in that sometimes the most precious and treasured elements are hidden beneath the surface. Using traditional techniques with precious metals and diamonds, every tiny petal is hand formed and precisely engineered to create these beautiful impressions of the natural world.

Issy White Jewellery For Enchantment Exhibition Bristol

Issy White

Issy White’s jewellery is made directly from textures and shapes from the natural world. She forages for fragments of nature – like a peeling piece of bark and a fallen seed. By carefully manipulating the metal and embellishing it with precious gemstones, she aims to capture Mother Nature and recast it - to turn it into something that connects its wearer back to nature. Issy uses recycled metals and sustainably sourced stones, in an aim to respect every knot and rivulet she casts.
