Blue Enameled Petal Pendant
Arran Art Gallery is for people from all over the world that have an affinity with the beautiful Isle of Arran.
Ann Hume is a contemporary jewellery designer living on the Isle of Arran. She makes individual, intricate and delicate pieces of jewellery.
A graduate of Glasgow School of Art, she studied Drawing and Painting and after several years teaching she completed a course in Silversmithing and developed her love of working in metal. She uses traditional silversmithing techniques, folding, hammering and stamping, creating organic-looking forms, working predominantly in silver. She has recently begun to explore enamelling which has added an exciting new dimension to her work.
'My jewellery is inspired by the natural environment, movement in petals and leaves, the formation of seed pods, pebbles and textures on the shores and the changing light and colour on the sea and sky on this beautiful island'
