Emma Sedman

Pale Blue Enamelled Studs

Emma is a jewellery designer and maker with a special interest in enamelling. Primarily her work explores the vibrancy of colour and it's combination with both other colours and precious metal leaf.

Emma's newest 'Fusion' collection uses single enamel colours as the dominant feature in simple designs. In these designs the colour is both emphasised and softened by the fusion of gold and silver leaf flash fired into the surface of the enamel. This adds decorative detail that draws the attention and adds interest but also softens the impact and intensity of the colours.

Jewellery making was Emma's major area of study on her degree course attained at the University College of Ripon and York St John in 1995, in the same year she was selected to exhibit in 'Class of '95' by the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths' in London, and has been a member of the Guild of Enamellers since 2001.

Emma's jewellery is now exhibited at galleries around the country, including D'Argent in Oxo Tower Wharf, London and the Bluecoat Display Centre in Liverpool. Emma also welcomes visitors to her workshop and gallery at Reeth, surrounded by beautiful scenery in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.

"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 57 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.
