Hi, we are John & Dawn Field, based in Yorkshire, England. We have been successfully exhibiting and selling our jewellery in prestigious craft centres and art galleries nationwide since graduating. Over the years we have developed a number of ranges of jewellery, working both together and individually.
We have a shared passion for making things and being creative. Recurring themes in our jewellery are asymmetry, contrasting metals and richly coloured gemstones. In our Asymmetrical range, stencils, designed by us, are rolled into silver, then, rather than making matching partners, one earring will have a vividly coloured stone and the other will have some brass decoration.
John also works on one-off pieces. His treatment of richly coloured natural materials, including exotic hardwoods, shagreen and individually made glass beads, that are made by John, give them a timeless and sometimes mystical feel. The jewellery often has its own stand or lives in its own box.
Meanwhile, Dawn’s fine art background brings a different creativity to our work, her passion for mark making and colour can be seen throughout the ranges. Dawn also uses strong figurative imagery, for example the animals and other creatures that feature in her new keum boo work.
