Sharon McSwiney - Jewellery and Metalwork
I have always enjoyed drawing & making things and for nearly 25 years I have designed & created jewellery, metalwork & greetings cards. At first this was from a tiny workshop space in the historic Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham, then for 10 years from a converted farm building at The Fold in Bransford, Worcestershire but most recently I have moved to St Ives in Cornwall where I have a retail outlet & separate studio space.
My work often reflects my sense of humour particularly within my quirky animal jewellery. It’s great to make people smile with your work. I also have a real love of texture & pattern which is illustrated in my metalwork; decorative wall panels & plaques. The materials I use include silver, copper & brass utilising etching & casting processes.
I produce all my pieces from my studio in St Ives and sell from my shop at The Drill Hall, via galleries in the UK, contemporary craft events, local arts markets & my Etsy shop online.
