Emily uses the simplicity of line and natural form to create ergonomic, wearable stone set art objects in precious metals. The gem material she uses is carefully selected for their unique natural inclusions, some of which is pre-cut others she carves herself to continue the sculptural element of her design through into the stone. She hand crafts her pieces using traditional techniques such as, alloying gold, forging, and mount making, to form distinctive settings to emphasise the carefully chosen gemstones. Emily has a BA in Silversmithng & Jewellery from The Cass, London and now works from her studio in Sheffield.
