Jewellery Design Concept planning by Alexis S
Contemporary Jewellery Designer Helen has come a long way since her upbringing in rural New Zealand, whilst working in the corporate world in London she found her passion of silversmithing and her jewellery journey began. After a chance discovery while studying of a single set of scale models and the quandary of how she could make them into lasting keep-sakes she found a new passion for working with resin and scale models, the keepsake being the narrative for her design collection concepts. Intriguingly tucked into each infinitely wearable piece of her work is an element of humour making a second look a must for her jewellery collections, which sell worldwide.
In 2005 Helen moved from London to Wiltshire and continued her research and development of resin in jewellery specialising in making and perfecting the use of moulds for resin jewellery work.
Helen’s work has been exhibited nationally at Origins and internationally at LOOT Museum of Arts and Design New York and Did Sieraad in Amsterdam and her Jewellery is featured in several books including; Narrative Jewellery” by Mark Fenn, 25 reasons to wear jewellery by Barbara Schmidt and Adorn-new jewellery by Amanda Mansell. Helen was awarded Best Jeweller 2006 and best maker South West 2014 at Bovey Tracy Contemporary Craft Fair.
Helen has been teaching Jewellery skills for over 15 years in which time she also collaborated with Exeter University on teaching a Resin Project with Professor Nicola Thomas. Helen continues to teach students on a one-to-one basis in her Wiltshire studio.
