HELEN LONDON
SILVERSMITH AND JEWELLER


Helen London designs and makes bespoke, high quality silverware and jewellery. Most pieces are made in sterling or fine silver and gold items are made to commission. All of her work is handcrafted from her workshop based in Tewkesbury. She studied at the London Guildhall University and later at the Bishopsland Educational Trust in South Oxfordshire.

Central to Helen's work is a great love for making - manipulating silver, perfecting techniques and solving technical challenges. She has a hands on approach and admires all forms of great craftsmanship, from contemporary design through to beautiful museum artefacts. A connection with the past and the historic background of craft is evident in Helen's use of the traditional technnique of filigree. This uses fine twisted wires set in a frame to create intricate pieces that adorn and decorate their wearer. Helen utilises this technique and incorporates it into sleek contemporary designs. The simplicity of shapes created and the bold use of line and pattern magically transforms an ancient craft in to an elegant work of art in the 21st century.

The same principals apply to Helen's unique silverware. She enjoys the opportunity it affords her to expand designs and express flowing line and pattern on a larger canvas.

Structure of form and surface design can originate from playful experimentation with three dimensional models or from the elegant lines and shapes that depict the human body. Helen also loves to create pieces with movement and mechanism. This delight in technical detail comes from a belief that an item of silverware should be a much used and cherished belonging. Attachment to a physical object comes from familiarity and so Helen encourages this by creating items that beg to be handled, moved and toyed with.

 


Helen will also work to commission if you have a particular item in mind. From a bespoke design service to the creation of your specific requirements, Helen is able to make that special piece that you just can't find in the shops. Please use the contact details on the right to get in touch if you would like to discuss your requirements.
