My love of jewellery-making began over a decade ago when I attended a local evening class teaching silversmithing techniques. Since then I have enjoyed honing my skills and developing designs from my workshop at home in a tranquil part of rural north Lancashire. I make the kind of jewellery I like to wear, inspired in part by clean architectural lines and forms and subscribing to the notion of “less is more”. I am drawn to pared-back, understated designs with a minimal aesthetic and often start with a vague idea which develops into something more concrete during the making process. I love the artistic side of jewellery design but also the science that underlies the making. Understanding that is key to knowing which designs will work and which won’t. Many of my most recent pieces combine silver and gold, with gold foil being applied to the silver using an ancient Korean gilding technique called Keum Boo that brings together the use of heat and pressure to create a bond. I have also been spending time developing my stone-setting skills, working with a variety of semi-precious gemstones. 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.
