Devon-Guild-earrings_Anna-Pope-jewelleryAnna designs and makes contemporary jewellery in her studio based at Krowji in Cornwall. Also a Devon Guild Member, she is inspired by traditional basketry and challenges both disciplines by combining them to form unique pieces of art in a mix of media, such as gold, gemstones and coconut fibres.

Through her work Anna hopes to share her appreciation of the beautiful basketry of a slower-paced bygone era, when makers were in tune with their natural surroundings and materials used. Her interest in basketry originally derived from the early stages of her 
evon-Guild-Anna-Pope-Design-turquoise-enamel earringsdegree at Loughborough University where she was able to explore a diverse range of materials, such as wood, ceramics and metal.

Little did she know that the very first studio based module would become such a strong influence in her work. The task was to entrap and enclose an egg using only the wood provided. She cut some into strips and wove them together to create a sculpture which formed a cradle for the egg. Anna soon discovered the therapeutic and versatile qualities of weaving which spurred her on to researching basketry, discovering a passion for its heritage and techniques.

Anna undertakes commissions and runs regular jewellery workshops, often based on heritage themes.
