Gold lined silver Curl Knot pendant

About Stephanie Johnson

Stephanie graduated from Loughborough College of Art and Design in 1980 with a first class Honours Degree in Silversmithing and Jewellery Design and began work a year later in shared workspace before setting up her own studio in the Lake District in 1986. She moved to Cornwall in 1990.

‘I work in silver and gold producing pieces which drift curl and wrap around freely to create a unique range of sculptural handmade jewellery that will draw the eye to its wearer and the inherent beauty of the materials.

I design in response to exquisite patterns textures and forms in nature and am inspired by the innovative work of contemporary Japanese fashion and textile artists.

My work is informed by countless experiments in metal and observations, drawings and photographs of objects gathered along the shoreline and in the sub-tropical gardens that lie between the Fal and Helford rivers near my home in Cornwall.

I work intuitively and make and adapt tools to facilitate new ways to texture, crimp, crease, and manipulate precious metal. Unpredictable and often surprising results dictate the direction of a collection.

I use finely textured finishes to emphasise the light reflective qualities of silver and gold and the play of light across the gently curved surfaces, creased and flexed forms.’
