“I am inspired by my surroundings in North Yorkshire and the natural world influences my work greatly. I use traditional jewellery making skills and techniques and work primarily in silver but enjoy incorporating semi-precious stones and gold into my designs. All of my work is made by hand by me in my small studio, I feel passionate about the jewellery I make and take the utmost care and attention at all stages of production.” - Katharine Yelland

Kate says: "These earrings are so elegant. I love the hammered texture and the gentle dome on them created by a technique called Repousse, this involves hammering the metal with punches, shaping and texturing the metal at the same time. This hammered texture is then highlighted by part oxidising the metal to create the dramatic two tone black and silver contrast."
