Since graduating from The School of Jewellery at Birmingham City University, Daisy has set up her studio in the heart of Sheffield city centre not far from the Peak District where she grew up.
The rolling hills of the Peaks with their soft curves and expansive greenery inspire both Daisy’s bespoke collection of ‘Rural Rings’ and commemorative collection ‘Springtime Florets’.
Motivated by her love of contrast and combination she uses a number of metal working processes; fold forming, etching and hammering techniques, creating fluid linear works which sit across the contours of the body as beautifully sculptural jewellery pieces within the bespoke range.
Daisy enjoys the working relationship she has with metal, using the properties of the material to manipulate the surface texture and form, discovering what can be created from the initial sheet. She continues to look to ways in which she can develop her work both through visual inspiration from the ever changing contrasts of the world around her and via this exploration of different metal working processes.
The collection ‘Springtime Florets’ captures the same natural elegance and linear fluidity of the larger bespoke pieces on a smaller, more accessible scale, making these pieces ideal for everyday wear.
Working primarily with silver, Daisy creates these beautifully stylish pieces which are perfect gifts to commemorate significant milestones such as birthdays, graduations, weddings and other special occasions.
Heart Gallery is delighted to be working with Daisy for Spring 2019. You can follow Daisy on Instagram.
