Judith Brown has been making jewellery since 2004, when she began hand stitching with wire; this technique was inspired by her studies of embroidery at Manchester Metropolitan University. Since then her techniques have been refined and she has developed collections of jewellery which have an elegant feel.
Her contemporary Geometric collection is inspired by Art Deco shapes and colours. These pieces are made with very fine silver wire in a variety of finishes including bright silver and oxidised silver, which complements and highlights the subtle tones of the glass beads carefully selected to feature in these collections. Other collections are more delicate and intricate with a nostalgic feel. Her latest Fern and Leaf collection takes inspiration from wildflowers and leaves.
Her jewellery is exhibited and sold around the UK in galleries and shops and her stockists have included the British Museum and the V&A. Judith works from her studio, where she also runs workshops, above a quirky café in the market town of Leek, Staffordshire.
