Dittany Rose

Jewellery

Dittany graduated with a degree in Jewellery Design from Middlesex University in 1995. In the last few years she has taken up creative practice again after working in another career - language assessment. In that time her
practice has developed from painting and drawing, through printmaking and now back to jewellery. The images used in her jewellery were developed through print making, in particular screen printing. The evidence of her evolution through these art forms is clear in her work.

Dittany uses a unique combination of card and sterling silver to create jewellery that is light, water resistant and durable. Once her images are printed onto card, she cuts out the constituent parts using a laser cutter, a

technique that comes with its own challenges when dealing with paper and card. Multiple layers of card are then laminated together so that a strong bond is formed. For some pieces findings are added afterwards and for others they are embedded into the laminated card, thus making a feature of the functionality of the piece. Her inspiration comes from the materials and the processes she works with; a desire to experiment with both to see what forms are possible.

Her current collection includes stud earrings, drop earrings, brooches and pendants in a range of colours and sizes. Playful yet elegant, their design led approach is immediately obvious. She will be showing her work at Cambridge
Showcase hot on the heels of taking part in the Hepworth Wakefield Christmas Market.

Dittany’s work is also available to buy online. For more information about her work please visit her website.
