Award winning Artist Jeweller Ella works with strong shapes and diverse materials to create playful sophisticated contemporary jewellery that references historical forms.
Drawing on multiple visual and cultural sources she develops shapes that are both fresh and familiar, whose identities are at the heart of her decorative collections. In her Modern Rococo Collection she layers the silhouettes of royal chess pieces and medieval window details, with the beautiful undulating forms of wooden finials and the energy of Renaissance jewellery.
The conversation between materials is central to Ella's work. Often pairing precious and non-precious like oxidised silver with Lucite, and gold with brass. She also enjoys exploring the balance and interplay between surface finishes - the twinkle of a hammered rivet against smooth Lucite, the satin finished metals with the rich tones of vintage pearls.
Having studied at Morley College Ella now works from her London studio to develop and hand produce small collections and one off pieces.
