  Selected Makers

Yvonne Gilhooly

I see my work as a journey from simplicity to complexity through the manipulation of form. Using traditional precious materials and hand skills in a process of construction and repetition, I create contemporary studio jewellery with a sculptural presence.

Process is key in the development of my designs which continue to evolve whilst at the bench in an exploration of volume and movement.

Recent work represents both organic and geometric forms where symmetry and asymmetry co-exist and the use of a restrained pallete combined with surface patination is employed to create an innate sense of elegance.

"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 29 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.
