Biography: Nicola Underwood

Contemporary style jewellery designed and created by hand in Nottinghamshire, using a range of materials including sterling silver, copper, bronze and semi-precious gemstones.  

The unique and bold pieces of jewellery are made using the traditional silversmithing techniques allowing the heat and colour of the metals to create one of a kind pieces and together with inspiration taken directly from stones themselves, allowing the colours and random designs in nature to enhance the way the designs are developed.  

There is also influence from the Art Deco period with the geometric shapes and styles incorporated within her designs and she hopes that her modern take on this period in time comes through in her work.
