Katherine Lawrie’s jewellery is handmade in sterling silver and gold and inspired by natural forms and ethereal qualities.
She uses various techniques to create her jewellery. The predominant one is roller texturing, an unpredictable technique which involves the use of steel rolling mills and natural and manmade materials, such as feathers, leaves, lace and petals. This fundamental technique underlies the rich and varied textures found in her work. She uses this in conjunction with semi-precious stones and beads to create a body of work with sensitivity and subtlety which works in sympathy with the wearer.
Katherine works in a converted stable which is situated on part of an old farm yard in the West Sussex countryside. The relaxing calm surroundings are echoed in her work.
