Image of the Day - Penny Warren

Brighton based jeweller Penny Warren works primarily with anodised aluminium combined with silver.

Pre- anodised sheets of aluminium are dyed freehand and the colours diluted to achieve a watercolour effect giving them more depth and subtlety. When the sheet is dry, it is boiled to seal the colour permanently into the surface.

Once done the sheet is ready to be cut up into jewellery. The pieces are milled to add a texture to the surface, shaped, and the edges are polished. The aluminium is then combined with silver either by riveting or using folding techniques.

All the wires and chains are made from sterling silver.

Penny Warren will be exhibiting at the Palace Art Fair with Rosehill Workshop
