BEVERLY BARTLETT DESIGNS AND HANDMAKES HER JEWELLERY FROM HER WORKSHOP IN BERKSHIRE. THESE ELEGANT DESIGNS ARE INFLUENCED BY BEVERLY’S BIOLOGY DEGREE AND REFLECT NATURAL OBJECTS AS THEY APPEAR UNDER THE MICROSCOPE.
Beverly’s first degree was in Biology, and this has a fundamental influence on her work, both as a source of inspiration and in the way she approaches working with precious metals. Understanding how these materials behave helps Beverly to shape and form silver to create her tactile pieces. Her jewellery features unique textured surfaces, emphasised by depletion gilding, combined with polished elements.
