Opening Times: Tue – Sat 12-6pm; PV Thu 6-9pm
Location: The Gallery, Craft Central, 33-35 St John's Square, London EC1M 4DS

Jewellers Sarah Herriot and Mark Nuell showcase their latest jewellery in this joint exhibition, modelled by their trusty canine assistants, in the heart of Clerkenwell.

Together Herriot and Nuell’s unique styles represent a broad approach to jewellery design and making. Herriot combines 3D CAD technology and handmaking jewellery techniques, while Nuell’s expertly refined goldsmithing is enriched by merging traditional gem cutting and uniquely sourced Australian precious stones.

Sarah Herriot launches two new collections: the new contemporary range, a study in linear relationships; and the fine jewellery range comprising 18ct gold with black and coloured rough diamonds.

Mark Nuell will be presenting a new body of work made from the rough gems he collected on his most recent gem mine trip.

A Summer Encounter

Opening Times: Mon 2-6pm; Tue, Wed & Fri 11.30am-6pm; Thu 11.30am-7.30pm (Late night opening); Sat 11.00am-5pm; Sun 11.00-3.00pm

A Summer Encounter with three jewellers from Flux Studios in Camberwell, London.

Jacqui Quinn, Alex Yule and Barbara Yarde come together to reveal their range of alluring handcrafted wares.

Jacqui’s ideas emerge through drawings, photographs, sculpture and the observation of life and its beauty. She delights in sketching the most detailed fragments then explores the shapes through forming metal and sculpting.

Alex draws inspiration from her former influences, a love of beach-combing rocky coastlines and an appreciation of natural forms. She creates delicate silver and gold jewellery with attractive oxidised and enamel surface finishes.

Barbara’s pieces are influenced by her travels and everyday life. She has taken inspiration from such places as India, Morocco, Egypt and London. These places have fuelled her imagination and influenced her jewellery.
