Artist's Statement

Aileen is a Scottish jeweller and design graduate from the Glasgow School of Art, specialising in Silversmithing & Jewellery.  Aileen is influenced by the geometric and repetitive nature of the urban environment with contrasting elements drawn from the city lights.

Aileen works with silver, steel and copper to create the base of her hand crafted structural forms incorporating coloured thread and enamel paint.  Subtle textures and patterns are created in selected pieces using the process of etching.
