Gabbie is a professional designer/maker with many years of experience in creating jewellery and artwork. She has also worked as an adult education tutor in various creative arts.
A degree in Jewellery and Silversmithing at the Birmingham School of Jewellery, found in the heart of the historic jewellery quarter, was the perfect start to her lifelong passion for designing and making.
As a Clevedon resident for over 25 years, Gabbie has found inspiration in the textures, shapes and colours of west country land and seascapes.
Much of her work focuses on details of the natural world, which may be easily overlooked in our busy everyday lives. The fascinating textures of lichen or the patterns on pebbles could find their way into both jewellery and other artwork.
The original jewellery is principally made from silver using hand tools and traditional techniques such as piercing, forging and hammering. Some jewellery pieces may include gold, semi-precious stones, pearls or enamelling. All are created to be practical and timeless, giving the wearer a unique item to treasure for many years.
Gabbie also loves drawing and painting, experimental printmaking and working with textiles and embroidery. Often these facets of creativity overlap or are combined, providing yet more ideas for development.
