Eleanor Christine Jewellery
Muddy says – bold, edgy gold and silver jewellery using precious stones from around the world, handmade by the super talented Ellie in her Frome workshop
Eleanor designs and creates bold, edgy, sculptural jewellery working with silver and gold, often with the inclusion of unique stones sourced from around the globe. Many of the pieces reflect her love of Roman and mediaeval jewellery – her preference is for stones cut with old techniques set in chunky, hand-hewn settings. Designs are inspired by the materials themselves – by the shape of a stone, the hammered effects on the metal. She doesn’t favour overly finished, polished metal – she likes it to speak for itself using texture and contrast. Her work isn’t subtle – it demands to be seen.
The processes used are construction, piercing, forming, wax carving and casting, and stone setting. Each piece is unique, with a lot of her work coming from bespoke commissions.
