Gem of the Day – Alison Swindles

Leave a comment

I recently discovered a new British designer maker, Alison Swindles, from High Wycombe, near London. I particularly like her stunning ‘Droplets Brooch’ so chose it as today’s ‘Gem of the day’.

This stamped sterling silver enamelled brooch (45mm x 45mm) has enamelled droplet highlights in two shades of blue Vitreous enamel. These enamelled droplets move slightly to give a shimmering effect when worn.

After finishing her degree in Jewellery at Buckinghamshire University Alison exhibited in the RBSA Gallery in Birmingham, New Designers Exhibition in London 2010 (where I also exhibited in 2004).

Alison’s silver and vitreous enamel jewellery designs are not only beautifully handmade but unique in that they are not available on the high street. Take a peak at her online shop ‘Jinkles’.

Who’s been my ‘gem of the day’ before?
