EVGENIIA BALASHOVA Eve's work explores repetition, movement and manipulation of shape and form. She creates unique, vibrant and energetic pieces that combine strict geometry with soft flowing curves and balance between traditional hand skills and digital technology. Eve uses a mixture of 3d printed nylon and Sterling silver to bring her ideas to life.

NICKY FAILL As a designer maker, Nicky is interested in the space between silversmithing and objects. He is inspired by digital techniques and how these can be used as a tool to create something handmade. It is this combination of digital and handmade, that he finds both fascinating and challenging at times.

ALEX MYLES Alexandra’s work is influenced by an interest in armour and weaponry and she enjoys finding unique ways in which she can incorporate aspects of it into her Jewellery and Silversmithing designs. She is interested in using contrasting elements in her work such as combining rigid geomantic forms and designs with more organic, less controlled elements.
