  • Janet Hinchliffe McCutcheon Necklace
  • Janet Hinccliffe McCutcheon Necklace


A showcase of jewellery from contemporary makers and designers using cutting edge techniques. These artists have been chosen for the high quality of ideas and execution in their work and best of all it will all be for sale.

Deborah Forrest makes enamel jewellery with a distinctive aesthetic, her jewellery evolves from an exploration of the 'hidden histories' of people and places. Unusual details are captured in enamel through mark making and surface manipulation techniques. Deborah's more recent work employs modern printing technology to incorporate her photographic observations in enamel.

Ruth Laird is primarily inspired by aspects of maths and physics particularly shape distortion through reflection and light diffraction.  She uses structured metal elements with more random effects like spray paint.

Janet Hinchliffe McCutcheon is a jeweller who uses silver, gold and textile elements, but who has been recently experimenting with glass elements in her work here at National Glass Centre.  We are proud to present her new range of glass and silver jewellery for the first time.

Ros Millar’s work has been described as having a ‘gothic luxe edge’.

In her designs and processes she applies traditional techniques in a new and original form to achieve an exciting contemporary style.

Deme Wolfe-Power makes work that has included taxidermy, bird anatomy, human hair, animal furs, and hides. The materials that she juxtaposes with these elements include traditional materials such as sterling silver, gold, pearls, and semi precious stones.  The resulting jewellery is something very unique.
