jewellery & metal clocks
Jill Stewart makes mixed metal small work, mainly jewellery, using etching and heat colouring, enjoying the colour contrasts created by putting silver with copper, brass with blue titanium. She also makes clocks which are etched and created from different metals to form small pictures with text. They feature animals and birds, the results of a rural childhood and a need for colour. There are other small items she is developing from these techniques.
“Customers tell me they like my work for its originality, and that in buying it they have a sense of buying something individual and humorous and beautiful”.
