Fiona Ingram Jewellery
The creative possibilities of Metal Clay are so exciting to me, I particularly enjoy working in silver, bronze and 24k keum boo gold. I am drawn to making elements made from a mosaic of applied pieces to create texture and pattern. A love of doodling, eastern and tribal jewellery also informs my own use of simple design and symbolism.
Moving back to beautiful Dorset provided the vital ingredients to keep the magic flowing: open spaces, extraordinary colour and beauty in nature, the pull of the sea and the ancient places that feel alive with history.
I have taught for over twenty years and have made teaching and learning a big part of my life. I have a PGCE and a Masters in Education from the University of Warwick specialising in mentoring. I am now a Senior Art Clay Instructor too. Before setting up my jewellery business I was one of a small group of writers to produce the National Education Programme for London 2012 Olympics, wrote the Doodle 4 Google art resources for schools and developed many other national programmes for schools and businesses. I am strongly persuaded of the restorative power of creativity.
