Scarlett takes inspiration from the skin, highlighting the beauty contained within the detailed structures of skin cells and the textures of the skin. Using various techniques she works with precious metals to create contrasting textures. She aims to engage with the wearer by heightening their sense of touch.

Leanne creates a distinctive range of geometric, silver pieces inlaid with precious and semi precious stones. She is fascinated by people’s minds and personalities, by what makes you, you! Her newest collection, entitled ‘Edges,’ takes inspiration from strong, bold individuals which in turn took imagery from the strong lines and forms found in rocks and minerals.
