Wire is the predominant material, hammered, textured and reconstructed through precision cutting and soldering. A colourful palette of exquisite stones and fine details added with granulation and textured surfaces further enhance each piece.
Angela’s jewellery is vibrant and intricate giving a bold overall aesthetic which is still delicately pretty.
Inspiration and influences
The mesmerising, swirling tides and eddies of the Menai Strait and its dramatic Welsh landscape are a continual inspiration to Angela whose passion for rowing traditional boats provides exciting opportunities to experience the waters, rivers and seas of Europe.
These fascinating experiences form memories of enthralling and beautiful aesthetics that beguile and inspire her.
Angela selects every stone herself from reputable stone dealers whom she has built trusted relationships over the years, finding that the best way to ensure they are sourced responsibly is to work with trusted experts rather than buying blind. Stones originate from all over the world, beautiful blue topaz and citrine from Brazil, peridots from Arizona and precious sapphires and rubies from Madagascar, Sri Lanka and Thailand. Each stone is individually selected by Angela. White diamonds are SI’s/GH or above ensuring their sparkle never dims whilst coloured and 'salt and pepper' diamonds are purchased from a specialist diamond dealer who recycles larger pieces with inclusions into new pieces by colouring and re-cutting them to create more unusual shapes and shades that make the most of each diamond.
All pieces are handmade in Wales from 100% recycled stock and we can also use your own gemstones and metals from heirloom pieces if desired.
The Conwy National Eisteddfod Crown 2019
Shapes in Sterling silver can be seen on the Crown. First, a stylised outline of houses representing communities, triangles, a shape with natural strength to reflect the sustainability of the area and finally the smooth line of the water in the River Conwy. The Crown features prehistoric copper from the Great Orme mine in Llandudno that was donated to Angela solely for use on the Crown. The crown was won by Guto Dafydd for his collection of poetry.
