Inspired by nature and simple forms

Katie Johnston has been making jewellery since 2005 (read her story here ).

Katie uses copper and silver to make colourful jewellery using the various techniques of enamelling and silversmithing. She likes to explore the spontaneity and experimental nature of vitreous enamelling. Her most recent collection, Exposure, represents the unfolding stories of objects and surfaces over time. Katie has used the  techniques of enamelling to build up layers of  texture and colour to represent this.

    The brooch is even more beautiful in person than in the photos - its so colourful and shimmery! Quality is immaculate. Arrived in a lovely little box wrapped in tissue paper, so it is ready to be gifted! My mum is going to love it, thank you.

    The Art of Enamelling

    Vitreous enamel has been used in jewellery throughout time and can be dated back to the ancient Egyptians. Its a lovely way to add colour and a range of effects to the surface of jewellery pieces. Powdered glass (made from silica, soda and metal oxides) is fused onto a metal base and fired at approx 850 degrees for around a minute, the powder melts, flows and hardens to form a smooth vitreous surface. There are many different processes and techniques of enamelling, some of them I use in my jewellery making such as sifting, stencils and sgrafattio. If you would like to find out more the British Enamel Society’s website has some great information.
