Handmade contemporary and unique jewellery.Made by Michelle Johnson.
I’m a North East based artist, jewellery designer, maker and teacher working from my studio in The Biscuit Factory nestled in the arty hub of Newcastle upon Tyne.
A piece of jewellery is an intimate and personal object. I work primarily in silver but have recently entered the world of copper and brass.
I love clean lines and strong profiles. Heavily influenced by the natural world my work involves experimentation with texture on my forms, drawing inspiration from naturally occurring textures found unassumingly covering the natural world and our own conscious manmade marks.
