Karen Faulkner- Dunkley believes Jewellery is much more than an accessory.
She says, “Jewellery should look beautiful, make you feel fabulous and reveal a little piece of the real you.
I started designing and making jewellery in silver gold 21 years ago, when I couldn’t find the exact jewellery I wanted and have never looked back. Much of my jewellery is designed in cohesive collections to include necklaces, earrings , bracelets and rings, but I also love to create one- of – kind pieces.
My greatest wish it that my jewellery is cherished and worn often, so as well as making the jewellery as stylish and elegant as possible, I have also infused the more recent collections with symbolism and meaning.

Naomi Brangwyn’s work sits somewhere between stained glass and painting, designed to hang on a plain wall where it can be enjoyed equally in natural or artificial light, she uses traditional stained-glass techniques, but wielding the glass cutter as a painter uses a brush.

Shaun Clifford is a woodturner and says of his work ‘I would describe my work as Organic meets Contemporary, all my work is turned from locally sourced English hardwoods. I get my inspiration for my forms from the wood itself, I look for ripples on the outside of the log , unions where branches have been cut off leaving figure and colours that you don’t get anywhere else.
All my work is turned green so you get a little natural movement. I mainly make hollow forms and different shaped bowls , simple but beautiful. I try to incorporate unusual features if at all possible.’
