Jewellery designer Adele Taylor makes contemporary jewellery and small objects using silver and 18ct gold and precious stones. Adele trained in Sheffield and graduated in 1988 with a degree in jewellery and silversmithing. Since then she has gained a formidable reputation for the quality and unfailing originality of her work.
Asymmetry is an underlying foundation of her designs. Rings and bangles curve and wobble, earrings don’t quite match, necklaces have different lengths of chain in unexpected places. This combined with her use of darkened oxidised silver, touches of gold and the occasional semi-precious stone, make her work completely individual and very desirable.
She enjoys the value practical hand making skills bring in the creation of her designs and letting the material influence and, to some extent, dictate how the pieces of work evolve during production.
She works from her studio in Sheffield.
