Amber Cooper-Green is a Nottingham based jewellery designer and graduate from Birmingham City University’s renowned jewellery design and related products course. She is interested in the investigation of materials and simplistic forms.
Her main focus currently is the combination of wood, acrylic and metal. She uses reclaimed exotic hardwoods, copper/silver, acrylic and steel nails to create statement fashion accessories. Each article is individually hand crafted and holds a certain warmth, transpired through both the pieces tactility and earthy colour scheme, often interrupted by small explosions of colour.
Lamination is the key process Amber uses to gain seamless transitions between wood and acrylic. It was this process and its material outcome that inspired her whole collection. Newer pieces are inspired by pebbles, both their shapes and her inadvertent attraction to hold them.
Amber has always loved tribal jewellery and believes she has subconsciously drawn aesthetic similarities to this style of work.
