Sue Kilby


I became interested in designing and making jewellery during my fine arts degree, and was lucky enough to spend my final year at The Rhode Island School of design. I believe that it is this dichotomy in my art training, both southern France and North America, that drives the inspiration for an eclectic body of work exploring the complex relationships between the organic, natural world and the industrial materials used in metal work. ‘Petrifying’ the natural by casting tiny bramble leaves and amorphous curling vines into the stricture of metal as in my Bramble Neckpiece and Medusa rings, or domesticating the industrial by turning forged pencils with their sharpenings and miniaturised cutlery into wearable jewellery.
