Munich. March 20, 2020. The ethereal artistic aesthetic of Kate Wood Jewellery, based in Bristol, England, is dainty, blossoming, and moveable forms in monochromatic and ombré color schemes. Jewels are executed in recycled sterling silver, oxidized silver, and gold vermeil, with hand-beaded gems like tourmaline, pearls, emeralds, salt-and-pepper diamonds, and sapphires.
Wood is a self-taught jeweler who persevered through trial and error until her signature style was born. Her love of nature and delicate movements are clear to see; each piece is a dainty bouquet-like offering of precious metals and gems.
“I’m inspired by patterns in nature, including berries and floral forms,” she explained at her booth. “Everything is made by hand.”
The 15-year jewelry design veteran has exhibited at the Inhorgenta fair in Munich for the past five years, and she can also be found at the New York Now show in Manhattan. At retail, find her work at the Aaron Faber Gallery in New York City, among other shops. (Click this link to see the list.) She also sells directly from her own website. Retail prices start around £100.
