Ellen creates precious jewellery by using square wire and folding and forging techniques. Her free approach to making is reiniscent of sketching in the air, as she forms the structures play with the space around the body, comfortable and light while making a statement. Tumbling chains of individually handmade links that constantly change position as the wearer moves. structures that curl around the ear, linear rings that wrap around unique colourful gemstones.
The whiplash curves of Art Nouveau and bold linear shapes of the Art Deco movement are apparent within the shapes that make up Ellen's unique designs. The contrasts within these movements are referenced in her name for the collection "Angles & Curls". The shapes are inspired by architectural ironwork, railings and gates seen on walks around London's West End. These are then interpreted into 3 dimensional sketches.
