CIARA BOWLES

I am a recent BA(Hons) Jewellery & Silversmithing graduate. I have a wide range of jewellery making and metalwork skills under my belt, and have worked extensively using plastics and rubbers over the past year of my career. Throughout my studies I have been heavily influenced by my interest in botanical studies and floristry. I am very interested in floristry. In my spare time I thoroughly enjoy drawing plants, foliage and flowers but also reading up on the science behind fractals and why the patterns in nature occur. Being from London, I like to take advantage of the museums and gardens such as Kew to get my inspiration.
