Angie has been handcrafting her unique style of precious jewellery at her Cockpit Arts studio since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2001.
Although known for its ‘softness’ and its tactile qualities, Angie’s work is inspired by geometry. It is, however, a natural sort of geometry, one which allows for natural irregularities, and which truly comes to life when draped on the body. Angie is also something of a modern-day alchemist, painstakingly alloying her golds in the workshop to create a subtle palette of green, yellow and red golds in 18 and 22 carat.
Studio visits are welcome.
The commissioning process varies depending on the nature and complexity of the piece. If it is a straightforward amendment to one of Angie's existing designs, usually a discussion around the original object, followed by a couple of rough sketches, is enough to satisfy both parties. If, on the other hand, the commission involves a completely new design being generated, this may be presented in the form of a CAD drawing if appropriate, or it could be a rough sketch with some metal samples - whatever is necessary to communicate the design. The final piece is constructed once a design has been agreed.
Commissioned pieces don't generally cost any more or less than their ready-made equivalents, so by browsing Angie's current collection you can get an idea for what a commission might cost.
