Jewellery by Fiona Hamilton

Necklace, Silver and Coral

I aim to create simple wearable jewellery that can still have an impact on the viewer. I am influenced by everything around me but have found, through the years of my jewellery studies, that I am deeply influenced by my upbringing in South Africa be it in the shape, textures, patterns, materials or techniques I choose to use. I find that my love of travel and interest in other cultures has also had a huge influence in my designs. I love the idea of my work being worn on a regular basis and not hidden away in some drawer only being brought out on a special occasion. I strive to create pieces that would match that special outfit but also wouldn’t look out of place worn with your favourite pair of jeans. I work mainly in silver and like to combine it with oxidising and gold plating the silver.
