WEARABLE, CONTEMPORARY JEWELLERY
Karina Gill works in silver and is influenced by organic repetition in nature, print-making and textiles.
She creates contemporary silverware and jewellery using her distinctive folding techniques which gives her a unique voice in contemporary silver.
Karina Gill studied at the Surrey Institute of Art and Design in Farnham where she gained her BA (Hons) in 3 Dimensional Design in metal work. Since completing her degree in 1996 she has built up her business from her workshop in Dorset where she designs and makes her etched metal bowls and jewellery.
Karina's work has been influenced by colour, texture and repetition. Her organic and geometric forms are hammered and manipulated by hand in silver. She enjoys creating warm decorative items and jewellery from cold, hard sheet metal.
Working in sterling silver Karina incorporates semi-precious stones and beads into her designs creating simple, wearable, contemporary jewellery.
