Belinda is a jewellery designer maker working in silver and gold, often incorporating precious and semi-precious gemstones.
Increasingly, she is sourcing ethical supplies of these natural materials and uses the fewest possible toxic chemicals in her studio in order to make her fabrication process as environmentally friendly as she can.
She is inspired most of all by the vast array of botanical elements in the meadows and woods of a wetlands nature reserve by her peaceful, riverside home.
Photographing, sketching, pressing and really looking closely at natural forms is about finding and celebrating beauty in simple things.
The Japanese aesthetic of wabi sabi flows through this process, accepting transience, imperfection and incompleteness as part of what makes life bristle with wonder and creative possibility.
Natural shapes, patterns and textures can clearly be seen in the clean lines and organic feel of Belinda’s pieces.
She is delighted to undertake commissions and works closely with her clients to produce bespoke, unique pieces.
All Belinda’s jewellery is hallmarked at the London assay office, as per regulations. Belinda is also delighted to have recently become a licencee for Fairtrade gold.
We adore this new collection from Belinda for our Summer 2015 Exhibition The Way Through The Woods and hope that you do too x
