Bekki Churcher graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2011. We discovered her jewels at New Designers 2011.
Her interest in strong architectural lines and angles are adapted into her jewellery designs. Her collections are greatly inspired by her adventures as an urban explorer. Creating forms that emulate shapes and textures found within abandoned buildings. She builds up texture and depth, exploring the notion of growth that occurs and the natural destruction that entails.
Elements and concepts are recreated though enamel and folded sheet to create complex, three-dimensional forms. Intricacy and painstaking detail is added through a developed technique of geometric granulation that adds beauty and depth to the pieces in which it occurs. An important aspect to the work is that it changes noticeably at different angles, thus, making the back just as important, and if not more special than the front, allowing for a certain secret that only the wearer knows about.
