Hannah Bedford’s jewellery designs explore texture and form using the traditional process of granulation. Working in precious metals, Hannah creates a range of women’s jewellery, from intricate necklaces to bespoke engagement and wedding rings.
Collections are inspired by organic growth patterns in the natural world. Hannah uses granulation to create raised, textured surfaces that entwine each piece. Fine granulation encaptures precious stones and interlaces between surfaces, linking bangles and weaving across rings. The work is often led by these technical explorations, using them to play with scale, form and contrasting precious metals to create aesthetically beautiful forms.
Each piece is carefully handcrafted in her London studio, and her jewellery collections are exhibited nationally. Hannah also works with clients, to create beautiful bespoke commissions.
Since graduating from Birmingham School of Jewellery with a first class honours degree in 2004, she was selected for the Bishopsland Educational Trust (2004 – 2005) and the South Hill Park Arts Centre (2005 – 2007) residencies. Hannah’s jewellery is exhibited nationally and she has been represented at Collect (2006 and 2007) and exhibited at Origin (2009).
All pieces are handcrafted at Hannah’s studio at Cockpit Arts Deptford, in the hub of South London’s creative community.
