Elin makes beautiful feminine jewellery that is inspired by the Welsh countryside where she lives and works. This collection pays homage to the wildflowers that grow naturally on the Welsh mountains. Her Welsh Floral Hearts collection is easy to wear, printed with a distinctive floral pattern of her own design and made with an unusual material, called silver clay, or PMC, Precious Metal Clay.
Precious Metal Clay - What is it?
PMC is a combination of organic binders, water and microscopic recycled particles of silver. The clay is hand-formed into a shape and the desired texture added, before being dried, sanded and then fired in a kiln. The firing process removes the binder and fuses the metal into a solid form. Post-firing, all the soldering work can begin, where the pieces are transformed into wearable designs.
Working with PMC is quite different from traditional silver smithing as it requires a different set of skills, ones that tap into those of potters and sculptors, and is ultimately more environmentally friendly. Over the past nine years Elin’s method of working has changed significantly. She has been exploring 3D CAD design to produce her signature feminine and floral jewellery, whilst drawing on the original inspiration of her beautiful floral sketches and love of Silver Clay, her jewellery collection is constantly evolving. I wonder where she will go next.
