  Selected Makers

Carole Allen

I have been making Jewellery from silver and enamel  in my Cornish studio for over 10 years.  I learned these skills at different establishments such as Birmingham Jewellery School, University of West of England and West Dean College.

My passion for colour has recently driven me to experiment with anodised aluminium.  The painterly effects are achieved with printing and dyeing  and the metal is given extra dimension by the addition of texture.   The colours are sealed into the metal which is then formed into these gorgeous cuffs, rings. pendants and earrings which are so light and comfortable to wear.   Silver is added as a finishing touch on some pieces.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 2 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
