We have 22 pieces of Gail's work available in the gallery.
Gail grew up in Manchester and trained there in Wood, Metal and Ceramics before being awarded an RCA bursary to take her MA in Jewellery and Silversmithing at the Royal College of Art in London where she won the Bakri Yehia Prize for Excellence in 1983, and in 1995 she won the first prize in the Merseyside Craft Competition. She now lives in North-West London and specialises in acrylic jewellery and has attracted a large and enthusiastic following, not just in the UK but in many overseas countries too.
Her innovative jewellery has evolved by continuous experimentation with modern materials. The pattern and drawing refract dense colour with metallic gold and silver undertones across smooth and sculpted surfaces. These interact with the organic curvature and geometry of the highly polished optical-quality acrylic shapes creating shimmering, ever changing iridescence.
Though bold, her jewellery is designed to adorn and flatter the wearer and is suitable with either casual or formal clothing and is comfortable and easy to wear for both everyday and special occasions. Like the Bakelite jewellery of the 1930's, these elegant and striking designs will become the classics of tomorrow.
