Guen Palmer, Necklace in Silver, 18ct Gold and Aquamarine

We are delighted to see the return of one of our longest standing exhibitors Guen Palmer Designs.  Guen makes distinctive contemporary jewellery, by hand, based from her studio in the Cotswolds.  She can often be found during the exhibition by her work in the long gallery (next to the entrance to the Hardwood Café) and is always happy to talk to visitors about her work and to discuss special commissions for one off pieces of jewellery.

We asked Guen about the inspiration behind her work and she told us that sometimes the starting point for a piece is the gem stone, especially if it is a commission. The design process develops as a collaboration between Guen and her clients but usually references pieces that she has made before. This necklace which is the latest in a series was inspired by echinoids (sea urchins) and over time Guen will continue to experiment with the texture and form of the design and see where it takes her.

Many of Guen’s clients return regularly to see her at Celebration of Craftsmanship and Design each year.  From her obvious enjoyment for design and her ability to clearly interpret the thoughts and ideas of her clients into elegant pieces of jewellery it is easy to see why.
