Emily Kidson

Emily Kidson is a contemporary jeweller whose layered, intuitively designed jewels marry bold materials with traditional craftsmanship. Silver, gold, wood, inlay and hand painted details feature in her work alongside the boldly coloured laminate work, for which she has become known.

Kidson makes every shape and component by hand in her London studio, and each piece is the culmination of an immersive creative process. She is drawn to areas of immense detail; pattern, repetition and mark making, but also the clear uncluttered spaces around them, and she makes work which strives to find a balance between the two. Old industrial cities and canal sides are particular influences, from tapered chimneys to barges and water towers. Sensitive use of colour is central to the designs and her eye for detail informs the minimal, subtly layered aesthetic of her work.

After graduating from the University of Brighton with a degree in Three Dimensional Crafts, Kidson spent a year at Bishopsland Educational Trust. She took a diversion and became an art librarian before returning to making ten years later. Since then she has exhibited widely across the UK and increasingly internationally.
