  Selected Makers

Karen Adams

After completing my G.N.V.Q Advanced in 3D Design at North Devon College in 1996, I went onto study an HND in Design Metals at Plymouth College of Art & Design. I specialised in designing and making jewellery and went on to complete a BA (Hons) in Applied Arts and graduated in July 2000.

Based in Bideford on the North Devon coast each collection is designed and made in my workshop. My work is quite simple in design as I am very influenced by the natural form of curves and lines. I like to incorporate colour and textured elements into my work which I feel compliments the minimalistic themes.

Each piece is individually handmade from silver; I have incorporated many different techniques into my work from anodising, oxidising and more recently experimenting with different surface textures. Other materials that I use within my work are Gold as I like to combine this with the silver for a subtle contrast in colour.

I exhibit my work locally and nationally through galleries and other various exhibitions. Each item is hallmarked and packaged in a gift box.

"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.
