The Precious Imperfections Collection is inspired by the notion of how precious jewellery is to us and the memories held with in it. Samantha seeks to explore, throughout her process, perceived and accepted ways of making with metal as she seeks to corrupt the fragility of the materials. She plays with form and structure to highlight the wear and damage of old much loved jewellery. The pieces become organic yet stylized and once again a precious item for the wearer.
Samantha has an MA in Jewellery from The University for the Creative Arts, is a Member of the Association of Contemporary Jewellery and The Makers' Art Collective. Working in Sterling silver and 24ct gold plate, Samantha English Jewellery is hallmarked via the London Assay Office.
