Alys Power – Jeweller

Alys Power’s jewellery is made using materials which are reclaimed, reused, reinvented and recycled. These base materials are mixed with fascinating and beautiful found objects, sterling silver and semi-precious stones to create unique jewellery and accessories.

Her work explores the challenges of turning base and ‘scrap’ metals and other discarded articles into objects of beauty and value.

Working in a broad range of materials, she is inspired and led by the materials available and consequently many pieces are completely unique.

Humorous, quirky and full of personality, her work maintains the look of the handmade, vintage tools are used an imprint of their character and history into the finished piece.

The themes of her work are eclectic and varied. Often narrative, stamped words and phrases are used to expand on ideas and as decorative elements. Small found objects and pieces of reclaimed and vintage jewellery are frequently used and the notion of each piece is dictated by the materials themselves.
