Gabriella Casemore's jewellery is inspired by her fascination with the repetitive patterns found in flowers. She is also very influenced by vintage textiles and loves going to the V&A for inspiration.
She designs by exploring her ideas with paper first; folding, cutting, layering, then eventually translating these ideas into highly wearable silver jewellery. She starts with sheet silver and then uses traditional jewellery-making techniques of soldering and riveting along with bending and folding to create sometimes complicated three dimensional pieces, along with more subtle delicate pieces.
Gabriella graduated from Brighton University, where she studied metals and ceramics. She taught at Brighton's City College for four years, and is now making jewellery full time from her workshop in Hove, East Sussex.
