Biography

Angela Learoyd graduated from Fife College in 2006 where she studied Jewellery Design, Production, and Business Management. She now works in silver, using a variety of techniques to create surface texture. Manipulating silver by doming, folding, hammering, die-forming and rolling allows her to produce three-dimensional pieces as well as hollow beads.

Her jewellery nearly always incorporates gemstones. She particularly likes stones with a matt finishes and interesting markings and inclusions. Sometimes her inspiration for shapes and textures comes directly from the stone. She makes small, themed, evolving design ranges, limited editions, and one of a kind pieces that she sells in galleries and at craft fairs.
