Based in North Wales, Bethan works from her home studio. She finds importance in the method of making, the details of things handmade, right down to the practical mechanical aspects of a clasp or a pin.
The form, the texture, the feel of a piece is what leads Bethan’s designs.Enjoying the endless opportunities for experimentation available with enamelling, Bethan creates wearable pieces full of contradiction. Enamel, alternating between perfectly smooth glossy finishes, emulating manufactured enamelware and beautifully matte or textured surfaces. Restricted colour palettes are applied in a painterly fashion against forms of a linear nature with strikingly clean lines.
Her jewellery aims to achieve the simplicity to be worn effortlessly every day.
