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'
