Anna Clifton

Born in Birmingham and a graduate of the prestigious Birmingham School of Jewellery, in 2010, I escaped and moved to Malvern. The magical hills and

woodlands that I can see from my window are constantly changing with the seasons and are always a big influence on my designs.

My interest in all things arty however, isn't something that I've discovered since leaving the city.

This started at a very early age, when even at primary school, I would often tell my teachers that I was going to be an artist when I grew up!

On completion of my degree, I studied for a Post Graduate Certificate in Education and taught Art and Design & Technology full time for several years before finally making the decision to set up as a designer/maker in 2006.

My business has evolved naturally over the last few years, and following a couple of breaks to have babies, I now find myself becoming an established gold and silversmith, and am able to specialise in designing and making unique one-off pieces.

My passion for nature and the environment is a constant influence on both my life and my business and wherever possible I work in recycled gold and silver, always using ethically sourced metals and stones. Everything I make is done so using traditional hand tools and techniques, and I'm always looking for new ways to keep my business as "green" as possible.

In 2013 I ran a successful “Kickstarter” crowd funding campaign and have been able to use the funds from this to develop a collection of limited edition rings for exhibition, as well as other related pieces that are available in platinum, gold and silver.

I now work mainly to order and specialise in bespoke wedding and engagement rings as well as creating small batch collections for galleries and jewellery boutiques.
