Maike has worked as a jeweller since she graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2010. Her studio is based in rural Northumberland, and she splits my time between working on her jewellery, working as a jewellery curator at The Biscuit Factory, Newcastle, and being a parent.
You'll often find me out in the woodland or up on the moor, taking photos of wild flowers and grasses. Alongside my love of the natural world, I also find myself drawn to intricate textiles, and often turn to my Indian textiles books for design inspiration. I work intuitively with recycled and fairtrade precious metals, roughly sketching designs and piecing things together at the workbench to see them come to life. My designs have a flowing movement, catch the light and draw attention to the natural lines of the body.
Maike makes jewellery to be treasured for a lifetime, to be worn on very special occasions, or to add something special to the everyday.
