Fionna Hesketh has been making and selling her jewellery nationally for 28 years. She received a training in fine jewellery using precious metals at Central School of Art, London. She lives and works in Stroud, Gloucestershire.
Recently, Fionna has been researching and working with non-traditional enamel techniques, using both industrial, and vitreous enamel on a variety of metals such as copper, steel and silver.
General themes and inspiration which run through Fionna’s work are notions of delicacy and fragility; mark-making influenced by the landscape and the strangeness of materials when seen up close and out of context.
As a maker, Fionna believes in the importance of the hand-made mark, as evidence of the creative process and the action of the maker, as well as affirming the distinctiveness of the piece.
