Marian Watson works in silver, gold, precious and semi-precious stones. Her work reflects her passion for the foliage in the garden, the textures on bark and stone, or fragment of mosaic floor; with influences from both ancient and futuristic motifs.
Marian’s approach to her work is similar to making a painting, drawing with metal in an organic way, adding textures and some details in gold and stones to give contrast in colour. She works exclusively in gold and silver and currently specialises in work containing both metals. Often it is set with opals and moonstones, pearls and garnets, sometimes rubies and sapphires.
Marian Watson studied Fine Art at St. Martin’s School of Art in the late 1960’s. After gaining her degree she studied jewellery making in Oxford.
