Origin finds - Polly Horwich and Yoko Izawa

Two more jewellery makers whose amazing dynamic work really caught my attention were Polly Horwich and Yoko Izawa.

Polly Horwich uses materials from the everyday to create uncommon jewellery celebrating common emotions. She challenges standard expectations of sentimental jewellery with bold, playful pieces that explore protection and the preciousness of memory.

I really love the bold and colourful forms created in her collections. Seeing them at the show, I was absolutely intrigued by these wonderful three-dimensional forms, which created beautiful shadows and spaces on the walls they were displayed. After reading more about her on her website I am not surprised to discover she has come from an architectural background.
