Medium: Jewellery

Meet the artist & maker

Fine Art graduate Ruth mixes materials from the past, creating muted and rustic jewellery that looks like it has just been dug up. 

This same wabi-sabi style inspires her art. Large mixed media paintings rub shoulders with tiny collages of found materials, mainly inspired by her passion - mudlarking in rivers. 

Landscapes feature her finds as painting and collecting collide. Her home is her studio, where her intriguing aesthetic runs riot.
