Jewellery and Silversmithing Artists in Residence

Laura Ngyou

Laura Ngyou takes inspiration for her work from organic structures and vessels. Through the exploration of sculptural form and pattern, Laura translates the fascination and beauty she finds in elements of the natural world to the wearer and observers of her jewellery.

Laura’s previous design techniques, used in paper and textiles, have lent themselves naturally to the medium of silver and gold in her current work. Recent designs, of an oceanic theme have emerged from sketches, photographs and memories of previous diving and snorkelling trips to Borneo, Thailand and Fiji, as well as, specimens of shark eggs, eroded rock formations, shells and plant structures she recently observed on the British coastline.

Rachel Jones

Rachel Jones is an Award Winning and International Jeweller & Silversmith, selling and exhibiting her work in both the UK and Australia.

Rachel graduated from Middlesex University with BA (Hons) in Jewellery, during her four-year degree she was fortunate enough to spend six months in Australia at Curtin University in Perth on an exchange program. This enabled her to explore new avenues of learning as well as developing her work.

Rachel has worked for several notable jewellers including Tamara Gomez, Tania Clarke Hall, Ruth Tomilnson, Cathy Newell Price and Lin Cheung who designed the London 2012 Paralympic Medals.
