Maker's Details - Bruford, Ann

Anne makes hand forged jewellery with a distinctly sculptural feel, influenced by the coastline and countryside of Devon.

Category: Jewellery Silver
Working with the view from my workshop and a sketchbook of ideas drawn from the wider world I create small wearable designs that aim to fix in metal the textures and movement inherent in the rural and coastal world I inhabit.  The textures that hand forging tools can be persuaded to create are a key feature of my designs with both oxidation and patination being used to add depth and age to the pieces, to which in turn the wearer adds their own imprint with the textures becoming clearer as a surface patina develops, a glossy bright shine where it rubs against the skin and dull dark patches in the protected recesses. 

Ann works mostly in silver but also with gold with precious or semi-precious stones as accents to designs.
