Meet the Designer Ann Gosse from Welsh Hills Jewellery
Welcome to my collection of sterling silver and gemstone jewellery inspired by the landscape and handmade in the hills of Wales.
My jewellery is handcrafted from 925 sterling silver wire and sheet using traditional silversmithing methods to create bespoke pieces. I source the highest quality natural and created gemstones from around the world. Having trained as a silversmith for four years at Teeside University, I then went on to Birmingham to complete my Masters and PhD, becoming a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in 2005.
I am lucky to live in the beautiful landscape of the Vale of Clwyd in North Wales, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which serves as the inspiration for many of my designs.
Jewellery Design Inspired by Nature
Each design starts with my photographs of the valleys, lakes, moorland and mountains, local to home or from around the world, that inspire me. The design of the jewellery – its shape, intricate silver work and gemstone selection – is based on individual photographs that each create a unique story.
I hope that you love Welsh Hills Jewellery and all the wonderful landscapes that inspired their creation.
