Catherine Woodall

Catherine initially trained as an engineer in the eighties before changing to a career in arts administration. However, her enthusiasm for science combined with the arts has led her back to the craft of jewellery making.

Catherine studied jewellery and silversmithing to an advanced level at the Yorkshire Craft Centre for five years both during and following a Certificate for mature students course at Bradford College (2001 - 2003).

Her work has focussed on fin-de-siecle Vienna, drawing inspiration from the work of the Wiener Werkstätte and the paintings of Gustav Klimt. Natural forms also inspire her designs and produce jewellery pieces impressed with leaf textures, bezel set with dewdrops of rainbow moonstones and

Simple, elegant and eminently wearable.

Based in West Yorkshire, she works predominantly in silver and semi-precious stones, although she has produced bespoke gold pieces to commission.

Producing pieces to her own brief allows Catherine to explore her own designs inspired from nature and an art movement that she loves. Her work reflects this passion.

"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 30 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.
