Sian says, “I am delighted to have been selected to exhibit at the prestigious Goldsmiths Fair 2009. As part of the award I have been offered a free stand at Goldsmiths Fair and £1500 bursary towards the development of new work. This is the first time I will be exhibiting at Goldsmiths and will be showcasing my jewellery in week one: Monday September 28 to Sunday October 4th.”

From initial experiments in the manipulation of paper Sian translates the delicate and sensitive forms into jewellery. Each piece is a unique construction referencing nature’s interaction to the environment it is in. All of Sian’s collections contain earrings, pins, pendants, necklaces, rings and brooches. Materials include Gold and Silver as well as semi precious stones such as Garnet, Amethyst and Citrine.

Sian will be exhibiting and selling her work in Brighton in November at MADE09.
