Anny Ching Chin Hsieh

Ching Chin Jewellery

Anny Ching Chin Hsieh is a contemporary jeweller currently based in Bath/Bristol.  She is particularly fond of the miniature world, for the almost hidden surprise it gives to otherwise conventional pieces.

Chloe Solomon

Chloe Solomon

The work is inspired by irregularities found in architecture and skylines. Long geometric shapes are combined to create a finish that is minimal and structural but with an organic quality. Long thin baguettes are the favoured stone shape with a love for bi-coloured pieces, each hand picked.
