Untitled Brooch 5 - Faye Hall

About Faye Hall

Originally trained in textiles, and with over thirteen years’ experience designing highly tactile fabrics for fashion and interiors, Faye Hall now applies her perpetual curiosity for surface and materials to create bold pieces of jewellery which marry her textiles practice and silversmithing.

Guided by her collages and embroidered samplers, Faye is interested in finding beautiful solutions to combine materials of different weights, colours and origins through embellishment and placement. Curious about the use of embroidery as both a decorative and construction tool within her work.

Every piece of jewellery is handcrafted in Faye's West Yorkshire workshop, and created in a very intuitive way; She likes to be playful with her material choices and to juxtapose elements that you may not typically put together, such as linoleum and silk, or formica and gold. Working with found colours along the way only adds to the challenge of combining components that are inherently different in weight, structure and surface into an intriguing object which is tactile and harmonious. Faye often creates pieces using the ‘components’ of her larger works, fascinated by how they can take their own direction, which is separate from the intended purpose.
