Alice Barnes

Alice began her studies at the Chelsea College of Art and went on to study jewellery and silversmithing at the illustrious School of Jewellery in Birmingham where she won awards for her innovative creations. She then spent ten years working within the jewellery trade honing her design and bench skills before establishing her own company in 2014 in Brighton where she now lives. Born in London, Alice was always influenced by the strong architectural lines that surrounded her whilst growing up. She now draws complex beauty from the simplest of forms to make elegant, contemporary jewellery with meticulous attention to detail. Her work is influenced by the cuts, folds and repetition used in paper art, and draws on lines, angles and repetitive shapes for inspiration. Alice has won several awards, including IJL KickStart winner, 2017, NAJ Award for Excellence in Jewellery at the British Trade Craft Fair, 2017, and Goldsmiths’ Craftsmanship and Design Award for Technological Innovation, 2005.
