August Showcase: Annie Ricketts
Annie Ricketts creates modern fine jewellery from precious metals and stones.
She draws influence from contemporary cultural references and antique jewellery design, combining the two with modern jewellery making techniques to create eye catching pieces.
Born in London, she loves the colour and pattens of London’s vibrant streets and alleyways, the fly posters and markets, the high-end hotels and the chicken shops. Her jewellery enjoys the juxtaposition between the absurd and the precious. She is a magpie drawn to the shiny and sparkly and creates jewellery which reflects her love of bodily adornment through gold, silver, sapphires, rubies and other precious stones.
