Disa Allsopp

I am very interested in ancient jewellery like the Egyptians, Etruscans and many ancient civilisations that worked in metal. I hope my jewellery has that quality. This jewellery is mainly 18ct gold and sterling silver. Finishes used are oxidised silver hammered and forged gold /silver.

I leave the metal in its natural state using techniques.such as forging,reticulation patination and hammering. I do sketch a lot and try to keep the same freeness in the jewellery.

I have used some precious and semi precious stones such as garnets, tourmalines, diamonds for their colour. The range of jewellery includes necklaces, rings, earrings ,
brooches, and bracelets…..
