Michele Daykin – Meet The Maker – Jeweller

Michele Daykin is a contemporary mixed media jeweller who combines silver, her own batik fabric and plywood.

Inspired by the urban environment Michele has always been fascinated with textures and marks found on walls, pavements, surfaces and how they degrade, wearing and softening over time.

Having initially studied stitched textiles, Michele then went on to study silversmithing and jewellery.

The “Urban Surface” collection is inspired by the urban environment: textures and shapes of the stonework and concrete world we live in and draws on the marks and textures created over time through decay and age.

Consequently, the irregular shapes of her jewellery have evolved from urban stonework. The gap within each setting of the silver collection is a direct interpretation of the space between the stones.

The tabs for holding the fabric in the setting are intentionally visible; emulating the claws on a precious stone setting, elevating the fabric to a precious status.

However, it captures the more playful side of jewellery with the combinations of bright colours. This is also highlighted through the names of the pieces, referring to children’s games played on pavements.
