Charlotte Whitmore

Jeweller

Biography

Charlotte designs and makes mixed media jewellery from her workshop in West
Yorkshire. She works predominantly in silver, incorporating other materials such as
vintage plastics (Bakelite, Casein, Lucite) and Czech glass to add colour to the jewellery she creates.
Most of the work she makes is hand built using forging techniques or pierced from sheet
metal. She designs simple, organic forms which are then embellished with techniques
such as hand stamping, etching and reticulation.
Inspiration comes from the surrounding landscape. Tall, waving grasses, delicate
wildflowers and sculptural seed heads that can be found in the hedgerows and along
the towpaths near where she lives. All of these forms translate well into metal and
therefore jewellery, and have led to a series of statement brooches and pendants.
