Artist's Statement

Elizabeth Jane Campbell studied at both Telford College and Cardonald College before graduating with a BA (hons) in Jewellery and Silversmithing from Edinburgh College of Art in 2013. She completed her residency at Glasgow School of Art in 2014 and since then has been based in Edinburgh where she has established her own studio.
Most recently, Elizabeth was accepted onto the Crafts Council Hothouse 2017 Programme and won the Guild of Enamellers 2014 Bursary Award. Public Collections include National Museums Scotland. 

"My inspiration for this new collection stems from concepts of visual literacy, and specifically, the idea of Balance. Using these visual literacy theories we can break down our ‘ways of seeing’ into the simplest form – including shape, colour and pattern. 

I try to communicate a personal sense of balance through my work using geometric shapes, composition, colour and materials – creating simple contemporary jewellery. I work with enamel, and enjoy experimenting with material relationships – whether that’s combining a material with enamel; using enamel on a different material; or simply attempting to mimic a material in enamel, such as stone or concrete. I like to use traditional enamelling skills, such as cloisonné, while always trying to put my own personal stamp on the technique."
