My love of jewellery-making began over a decade ago when I attended a local evening class on silversmithing techniques. I was immediately hooked and over time have developed my skills and designs. As I explain on my website, I make the kind of jewellery I like to wear, inspired in part by clean architectural lines and forms. I am drawn to designs which are pared-back, understated and simple and often start with a vague idea which develops into something more concrete during the making process. I love the practical and artistic side of jewellery-making but also the science that underlies it. Understanding this is key to knowing which designs will work and which won’t.
A lot of my jewellery combines silver with gold – either in the form of gold foil applied to silver using an ancient Korean technique known as Keum Boo or as “vermeil”, the name given to a thick plating of almost 24 carat gold on silver.
Each piece of Fedha jewellery is handmade by me. There is no space for short cuts or “mass production” and I hope this is reflected in the quality of the jewellery. Most of my silver and gold jewellery is stamped with my own hallmark.
