Alex Yule draws inspiration from her surrounding environment, inheriting her father’s interest in wild flowers and love of beach-combing rocky coastlines.
From a young age Alex expressed her creative ideas in 3D forms and went on to train in Display Design. She soon moved into roles building bespoke props and window schemes for stores such as Harvey Nichols before developing her craft further in a career in architectural model making for a leading Covent Garden based practice.
Now dedicated to her long-term ambition as a jeweller Alex studied at both Sir John Cass and City Lit where she honed her skills working with precious metals. In 2011 she moved into a shared South London workshop where she launched her first collections.
Former influences are reflected in Alex’s work in which you will recognise her attention to detail and a love of natural forms.
Alex was delighted to receive a ‘Gold Award’ in the ‘Craft & Design Selected Awards 2014’ for Jewellery & Precious Metals, to top her previous ‘Silver Award’ in 2013.
Heart Gallery is delighted to bring Alex’s stunning collection to Hebden Bridge as part of our TIME & TIDE exhibition.
