THINGS OF THE SEA Natural Shell and Coral with Silver
I make objects, usually wearable, from natural and found materials and work them with silver, weaving them into unique pieces. For me it's about balance and form together with combined textures, and introducing movement and colour where possible. I want my work to give pleasure to the wearer -
it comes alive when worn or exhibited and appreciated.
Trying to take a new look at things/materials/objects and putting them together to produce a new way of seeing them and appreciating them. Making is my way of expressing myself - I want to make people think
Angela Soulier Contemporary Jewellery
My practice is now making, trying to bring new life to what I do. As well as working in my own studio I attend the Silverworkbench where I enjoy sharing the making experience and at the same time I learn new techniques and methods of working.
Silversmithing and jewellery making at a school in Mexico City where the tutors were from a silver mining town where most of the inhabitants were engaged in this.
I also worked with a colleague while living in Kathmandu. We worked with a local jeweller and gave workshops to a group of local women with the aim of giving them a way to generate some income.
