Emily Kidson is a contemporary jeweller whose layered, intuitively designed pieces marry bold materials with traditional craftsmanship. Silver, gold, wood and hand-painted details feature in her work alongside the colourful laminate she has become known for.

Emily’s studio is at Cockpit Arts in Deptford, where she makes every shape and component by hand. Emily is drawn to areas of fine detail, pattern, repetition and mark-making, but likes to balance this with clear uncluttered space. Old industrial cities and canalsides are particular influences, from tapered chimneys to barges and water towers. Sensitive use of colour and her eye for detail informs the minimal, subtly layered aesthetic of her work.
