Kairen Bradford

Kairen’s handcrafted jewellery is inspired by nature and organic in form with a textured feel.  Each piece is individually designed and made using sterling silver, sometimes with accents of gold or copper, and sometimes incorporating materials such as glass and resin.

 

Beautiful objects collected on walks around the country become templates, giving the pieces authentic shapes and proportions. Working mainly with sterling silver she uses traditional silversmithing methods enhanced with modern techniques to make textured organic jewellery.

 

One of the main elements of her work is designing bespoke pieces of jewellery based on a favourite leaf, flower or seed, possibly from a garden.
