Graham Mitchell crafts jewellery in wood, gemstones, and found items. His work requires a detailed knowledge of the structure and properties of the materials and how they interact.
The shapes and patterns are inspired by the natural landscape, but evolve as each piece is hand worked. Each piece is unique and personal, but fails to become an item of jewellery, until someone selects and wears it as an expression as to – who they are. The relationship between material, maker and wearer completes the artistic process.
Working from his studio in Oswestry, Shropshire, he combines jewellery making with photography, and latterly relief printmaking. Though different techniques, he finds the design process surprisingly similar, and each gives a new perspective on the others.
His studio at Tannery Cottage, Oak Street, Oswestry is usually open in the afternoons, but phone 01691 654961 before making a special trip.
