Shimell and Madden occupy that space where craft, art and fashion intersect. High quality and handcrafted, their jewellery explores themes of science, nature and time. They have been creating jewellery in their London studio since 2010. Emma Madden’s expertise is in craft and conceptual design, inspired by the universality of mathematics. Luke Shimell’s extensive experience as a goldsmith enables him to develop their designs into intricate pieces of exactitude.

Although the conception and execution of each piece demands a meticulous eye for detail their design process is quite experimental. Each idea is formed from constructing three-dimensional metal models, exploiting both material and method. This labour intensive process allows them to work through complex structuring, joining and finishing techniques. Together they have a great wealth of knowledge in jewellery production, from traditional mounting work to craft based art pieces and fashion accessories. This experience has enabled Shimell and Madden to skillfully create collections that range from delicate precious jewellery to large-scale sculptural pieces.

“Resolutely modernist, their work is abstract and linear, yet alive with rhythmic energy, resonating with the dignity of ancient architecture and the purity of classical geometry.”
