In London they spell jewelry like this ——-> Jewellery
The spelling may be different from the way we do it here in the USA but the craftsmanship of jewelry designer, Deborah Glasgow, is simply amazing!
I came across her works while hunting for creatives to follow on Twitter and the piece pictured above caught my eye because I’d never seen anything like it.
Plus, anytime I see something creative that uses the likeness of Black women I am immediately intrigued.
Check her bio:
My name is Deborah Glasgow and I am a Jewellery Maker and Metal-smith with a passion for creating jewellery. Being born in London, everything I produce is British and Handmade. My background is that I have a BTec Foundation in Art and Design Qualification, and a Batchelor of Arts Degree in Product Design from Central St. Martins School.
More recently I completed a Diploma in Jewellery Manufacture from Holts Academy in Hatton Garden, London. I have in the past had a stall at Spitalfields Market. In 2011 -2012 I taught basic Jewellery Making to mothers in schools and centres in North London. I have also done two short Jewellery courses at The London Jewellery School, Wax Carving and Jewellery Design.
In December 2013 I completed The Contemporary Craft for Enterprise Programme at Holts Academy. In the same year I had a space at The 13TheGallery Exhibition in Newington Green and ended that year exhibiting at The Contemporary Jewellery Exhibition in Birmingham. For 4 months ending in January 2015, I had a concession space at the fashion boutique called Kissing In Traffic.
An important aspect of who I am and what affects my creativity is the fact that I was diagnosed 15 years ago with Bipolar Disorder. This is a condition that affects my moods daily, but it has made me a stronger individual and to be a patient person with the world around me. But I believe the condition fuels my creativity so I am not ashamed of it. I believe that my having Bipolar Disorder can encourage someone else to dream big and aim high regardless of obstacles.
I love producing Sterling Silver Jewellery and make Rhodium plated and Yellow Gold and Silver plated jewellery. My work is always evolving and I am inspired by everything around me including fashion.
Living in Stoke Newington means I am drawing inspiration from everything around me. I love being in a creative community!
