Adele Taylor studied three dimensional design, silversmithing and jewellery at Sheffield Polytechnic and established her jewellery business soon after with a grant from the princess trust.
The interplay of different colours of metal, both naturally occurring and chemically altered, has always interested Adele. Consequently she continually experiments with the use of different metals such as silver, gold, copper and pewter. The working properties of the media have significant and creative influence on the final outcome of the work. “I like the way you can draw on the surface by stamping and embossing. I have always been interested in surface pattern texture and I find acid etching a wonderful way of drawing directly onto the metal”.
Adele is showing her jewellery at Crafted by hand in Masham, Yorkshire on 2nd & 3rd November.
We stock a selection of Adele’s jewellery in both our Exeter and Taunton stores as well as selling a variety of pieces in our online shop here. Prices from £37.
