About the Tutor
Angela is a local jewellery designer and maker who makes bold contemporary jewellery from recycled and ethically sourced sterling silver, using traditional jewellery making techniques.
Initially, she made jewellery for her own pleasure – she still finds the process engrossing. When her ‘collection’ of handmade silver rings started to get out of control, she sold her work at local craft markets but it was essentially still a hobby. With the encouragement of friends and family, she created AngeBdesigns in 2016.
Ange works as a physiotherapist and often references the day job in her jewellery design process. “I like people to feel that they are getting a handmade silver jewellery item that is unique to them.”
Her aim is to make ethical jewellery that is as sustainable as it is beautiful. Where possible she re-uses scrap sterling silver to create new work. In an age where we all want to be “a bit different”, and in an attempt to shun the mass-produced, she believes in quality over quantity – that is why her unique silver jewellery pieces are completely handmade, unusual and timeless.
