John & Dawn Field

John and his wife Dawn are based in West Yorkshire, U.K. They met when studying for their degrees at Wolverhampton Polytechnic in the mid-eighties. John graduated with a B.A. Hons. degree in Three Dimensional Design and Dawn with a B.A. Hons. Fine Art degree. They have collaborated and worked together since.

The materials used in the asymmetric jewellery range are un-hallmarked silver, brass and various semi-precious stones such as amber, amethyst, garnet, white moonstone and opal triplet. The silver cannot be hallmarked because it has the brass pieces soldered to it.

Textures in the form of stencils are rolled into silver, which then has other shapes soldered onto it. Rather than making matching partners, one earring will have a vibrant, rich coloured stone attached and the other will have decoration in the form of some brass loops.
