Artist's Statement

My name is Barbara Blane and I am currently living and creating in Northern Ireland. I graduated from university with a BA Hons in Contemporary & Applied Art, having specialised in Jewellery Design & Silversmithing.

Upon leaving university I began to experiement as a designer, inspired by the timeless natural beauty surrounding me on this stunning island. I decided I want to create striking jewellery exploring nature, which is also environmentally responsible and will stand the test of time.

This is why I use recycled silver in my designs whenever possible, and recycled packaging for all my products.

I believe jewellery should be a treasure which will last a life time, and carry memories with you through the years. It is my hope that by creating quality designs I can offer an alternative to modern, disposable culture and inspire others to do the same.

By making an ethically and socially aware decision to purchase environmentally responsible products we can help preserve our planets natural beauty, and to ensure future generations have the chance to experience it as well.
