Rose Teleri studied Jewellery and Ceramics at Carmarthen School of art, having previously attended classes with jeweller Sarah Lloyd Morris in Pembrokeshire.
Rose’s jewellery is characterised by organic shapes and textures inspired by the natural world. She works mainly in eco-silver but also includes gold, rose gold and found materials to create relaxed combinations of forms and tones. Her earrings and necklaces almost appear like hand-drawn ‘sketches in silver’ with no two designs being the same. Rose lives and works in Pembrokeshire.
Since leaving university I have developed a working process that helps me translate what I see around me into unique pieces of jewellery, each with its own personality. My main inspiration comes from pebbles and the irregular shapes and textures in nature. I find it almost impossible to create two pieces alike as the process of making often dictates the outcome. I enjoy working directly with the metal, embracing the dents and marks as they are made.
Quercus first showed Rose’s beautiful jewellery in 2019 when the gallery held a temporary exhibition space on the London Road in Bath. We are delighted to be showcasing her new collection in Winter 2021.
