Catherine Thomas is a Dorset-based jeweller, working from home and exhibiting through various galleries and fairs.
‘My inspiration comes from our environment (both natural and urban), and silver is a marvellous material which can be transformed through techniques such as etching and pressing. It is therefore rare for my pieces not to be textured to reflect my love of both the metal and my surroundings.
Each item is entirely handmade employing traditional jewellery bench skills. I work largely in sterling silver, with the addition of natural semi-precious stones and occasional highlights (and pieces) in gold, creating contemporary designs that are functional, easy to wear and highly individual.’
