By designer: Hilary Brown

Hilary is a jeweller at heart, although past work has strayed into the realms of spoons and vessels - the Crafts Council have some of her spoons in their collection.

She began her career in the 1980s making jewellery from thin sheet acrylic and experimenting with achieving a thin papery feel to a brittle man-made material. A selection of these early pieces is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Arts Houston, USA and the jewellery collection of the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Arts.

After a long break to raise children and a stint as an interior designer, Hilary is back at the jeweller’s bench currently working in silver on one-off and limited edition pieces. The current ‘crumpled’ series of pieces are inspired by playing around with crumpled paper – the thin theme again, and her love of ancient jewellery, especially that which has been crushed and flattened by centuries of being buried in a forgotten hoard.
