Maker's Details - Solange

Solange makes jewellery creating forms out of geometric shapes with a preference for angular bold stones.

Category: Jewellery Silver
Solange’s jewellery is abstract and minimalist. Using traditional techniques, she works in gold and silver with precious and semi-precious stones. She finds her inspiration in a structural approach, creating forms out of geometrical shapes exploring a variety of surface textures. Her designs often evolve around the stones used.

Solange grew up in Switzerland and Peru, trained in several jewellery workshops, but is largely self-taught. She has been making jewellery since 1975. Together with her partner, the late Martin Doyle, she founded and ran the Nucleus Gallery in Glastonbury from 1979-82. In 1983 Solange and Martin launched their first collection of fashion jewellery, becoming regular exhibitors at the British Designer Show, and selling their work through Harrods, Liberty and Harvey Nichols. Their collections were exported to America, Japan and Saudi Arabia. In 1984 they were among the founder-members of Makers, a crafts co-operative in Taunton, Somerset, which closed in 2011.Solange welcomes commissions, especially for engagements, weddings and anniversaries.
