Karen Fox

A graduate of The Cass, London, Karen Fox has won awards from the British Jewellers Association and The Worshipful Company of Pewterers. She has been selected for several exhibitions, including "Rising Stars" at The New Ashgate Gallery and The Silver Festival in Legnica, Poland.

"My jewellery almost always has an historical influence. I love the Elizabethan era with its fine detailing, opulence and dramatic scale. Architecture is also an influence - in particular the beauty of urban landscapes for their structure, geometry and repetition"

"My collection, 'Ruffle' in silver and 22ct gold & rose gold vermeil is crafted from ribbons of silver, finely textured and hand-forged to form a densely layered, undulating surface. The extravagant layers create an opulent feel, recalling a past time of exaggeration and decoration."

Karen's work reflects the spirit of her research - alluding to the past but innovative and timeless.

"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 6 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.
