Art and inspiration

Sally Napier’s beautiful jewellery collections are inspired by Cornwall’s wild Atlantic coast.

Dotted all across Cornwall are pockets of inspiring and talented craftspeople, creating beautiful and original pieces in various forms, each in their own unique way inspired by the stunning coast that surrounds us. One such person is jewellery designer, silversmith and regular on our ‘On display’ page, Sally Napier. Sally’s jewellery is designed and handcrafted with the emphasis on quality, attention to detail and keeping a contemporary edge.

Drawing inspiration from everything from art, travels and country walks, to the seaside and graphic design, Sally’s designs range from geometric to organic shapes and colours. Each piece is created individually using a striking and contrasting combination of semi-precious stones, silver, gold, pebbles, sea glass, slate and freshwater pearls.

Before setting up her own studio, Sally completed her BA (Hons) in Jewellery and Silversmithing at De Montford University and worked for various jewellery designers, gaining knowledge and experience both in London and Hong Kong. Now, Sally Napier Jewellery is sold at fashion boutiques, design galleries and exhibitions, and she also works to commission with both private and commercial clients.

Sally moved to Marhamchurch near Bude in 2016 and her work has been hugely influenced by living near the wild Atlantic coast. Her new range, ‘The Sea Collection’, incorporates raw and precious materials sitting next to each other in timeless and exquisite designs, capturing the essence of the sea and its dramatic shores. Expertly set within bangle, bracelet, earring, necklace and pendant designs, these pieces promise to make the perfect Christmas gift this year for that special someone. We particularly love her tidal bangles; inspired by the ebbing flow of the tides, they capture the reflections and movement of the sea beautifully.

Among other shops and galleries, Sally also sells her work in Bude’s Jaunty Seagull. This beautiful shop supports local artists and sells a variety of jewellery, art and ceramics. Dive into the deep blue with stunning sea-inspired jewellery on her website or contact Sally to meet her in person in the studio, see her work, and discuss a commission or repair.
