Charlotte Bezzant – Jeweller

 

Charlotte is a designer/maker who works in silver and gold and semi precious stones. She originally studied for a degree in Fashion Design, and started working in silver just for fun.

Charlotte now works full time making jewellery in her well equipped studio, which looks out over her garden, to the river beyond.

Charlotte is inspired by all sorts of things: written word, her travels, and small found objects and treasures which are cast in solid silver and used in her work.

For our Time and Tide Exhibition, the tinniest shells were found by Charlotte on a sunny, windswept Dorset beach. They were tucked away in her pocket, and taken home, ready to be cast in solid sterling silver before being made in beautiful jewellery.

The shells are a reminder of happy barefoot memories, fine golden sand between the toes, a windswept beach, and chilly lapping waves.
