Cornwall LivingIssue #64
Introducing the jewel of Marhamchurch’s crown, designer Sally Napier.
Dotted all across Cornwall are pockets of inspiring and talented craftspeople, creating beautiful and original pieces of 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.
“… semi-precious stones, silver, gold, pebbles, sea glass, slate and freshwater pearls.”
Sally’s jewellery is designed and handcrafted with the emphasis on quality, attention to detail and keeping a contemporary edge. Taking inspiration from everything from art, travels, country walks, the seaside, graphic design, Sally Napier Jewellery designs range from geometric to organic shapes and colours. All the jewellery and each design 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. Sally Napier Jewellery is sold through 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 captivating the essence of the sea and its dramatic shores.
Sally will also be exhibiting at The Cornwall Macmillan Christmas Fair at The Eden Project on Thursday 16th November 10am to 4pm, where 10% of her sales will go to Macmillan Cancer Care.
