PRESS RELEASE 

 May 2011

UK designer Samantha Braund brings us unique handmade designer creations. The jewellery pieces have a wonderful organic freeform style using precious metals with great flare to enhance and embellish ethically sourced, high quality gemstones.

One of the techniques employed to create her signature style, includes ancient wire wrapping, which dates back to 7000BC, a process that involves intricate wire weaving by hand, to create her own contemporary sculptures. Samantha Braund also sculpts her designs in modern art media, such as Precious Metal and Polymer Clays.

Samantha Braund describes how she works as follows: "There are two main ways I go about creating my jewellery. I do sketch a lot, and am constantly drawing these organic structures, that resemble natural elements. I then try hard to recreate these images into wearable pieces of art. The other method, is really where, I go with the flow guided by the medium at hand. There is sometimes a theme in mind, or an idea of how to present a gemstone, but essentially I paint, or sculpt my jewellery without much forethought. As a result my jewellery is known to take on a freeform organic style. I find it virtually impossible to recreate something, because of the methods I use. The good news though, is that each piece of jewellery tends to be unique and one of a kind."
