John & Dawn Field
John has been creating ranges of jewellery in partnership with his wife Dawn for over twenty years.
The materials used in their asymmetric range are un-hallmarked silver, brass and various semi-precious stones such as amber, amethyst, garnet, white moonstone and opal triplet. The silver cannot be hallmarked because it has the brass pieces soldered to it.
Their figurative jewellery is made using an ancient Korean technique called Keum Boo where heat and pressure are applied to fuse gold foil to silver. The silver is oxidised to blacken it so it contrasts dramatically with the gold and highly polished areas.
