As the end of our DJG winter 2010 show approaches, it’s time for me to feature Nicola Mather, the sixth new designer who exhibited with us at the Barbican this year.
Nicola makes beautiful and ethereal jewellery in stainless steel and silver.
Using mushrooms and seeds she collects as tools to make prints, Nicola develops unique and interesting patterns: these patterns inspire and inform her jewellery.
You can see the wonderfully detailed textures in this poppy seed brooch created by etching.
Nicola’s laser welded earrings have been a best seller in the show this year.
Delicately sculptural and with a dream-like quality, it’s no wonder Nicola’s already doing so well.
