Jayne Turnbull  - MY SILVER DESIGN – Jewellery maker and designer

 

I set up my studio in Surrey after completing a HND at London Metropolitan University.  My aim was to create and experiment with design and making contemporary jewellery totally personal to my own design aesthetic. 12 years on I still love manipulating precious and semi precious materials to create original, often one off pieces.

 

I have exhibited for the past 10 years at Brighton Open House, my pieces are always evolving, I am constantly striving to improve and push the boundaries of my work and style. I really enjoy creating pieces that are immensely personal and I am happy to work to commissions.
