Susan Kerr. My jewellery is unashamedly decorative, taking its influences from floral imagery and patterns and demonstrating my personal interest in the styles and motifs of Art Nouveau and Art Deco. Many pieces in the range recapture the femininity of the time, whilst updating it with a contemporary twist to create a new interpretation.

Precious metals, mainly silver, are combined with mother-of-pearl, Formica, leather or semi-precious beads to create an entirely hand-made collection of brooches, necklaces, earrings, pins and bracelets. I mainly work with sheet metal to create flat, pierced out designs to which floral details and colour are added.

I graduated from Edinburgh College of Art's acclaimed jewellery department in 2002, before completing a Post-Graduate year in 2003. I now work from a shared studio in the centre of Edinburgh, and exhibit my work both nationally and internationally.
