Born in Penzance, West Cornwall, Carly Hitchens is a jewellery designer who uses her surroundings to inspire unique pieces of handmade jewelleryin
Each piece of jewellery is handcrafted in Carly’s workspace in Cornwall. All handmade to a high standard and finish that allows all elements of the designs to come together.
Carly’s work is inspired by mining and minerals within Cornwall. She explores the structure; lines and angles created in minerals and translates this into her designs. Looking at geometric forms and incorporating influences from Art Deco and Modern Architecture, Carly creates intricate, contemporary pieces of jewellery.
She uses sterling silver square wire to create contemporary, mathematical, yet wearable jewellery.These structures are individually made before being shaped and formed. This is done by filing each corner with a square file, then using flat nose pliers to bend each angle into shape, before being soldered in place.
Prices range from £34 to £195
