Est. 2016, Emma Knight Jewellery is a brand celebrating Fem makers, which includes Mother Earth herself.

My designs are often inspired by Fine Artists such as the sculptor Barbara Hepworth. It is jewellery that crosses Art disciplines; perfect for fellow art lovers and creatives. Other work is an ode to the most genius maker of them all, Mother Earth. I transform Earths wonders to celebrate those little curiousities we forage on rambles that we want to keep in our pockets forever.

Process + materials

With a particular focus on how items feel, each piece is made using a combination of laser cutting, handcrafting, enamelling and skilled Silver crafting techniques.

All Items use Sterling Silver for essential components.

My Art making is very much influenced by nature, poetry and story telling. 

I like to shine a spotlight on curiousities than others may not notice or uncover stories which others have tried to burry.

Works available to purchase through my online shop are tokens and curiousities taken from beach combing trips and drumlin ramblings.

My paintings and photography feed into my jewellery making and vice versa. Each medium influences how I explore my surroundings and materials.

W H O   A M   I ?

I was born and reared amoung the rolling drumlins of rural County Down, Northern Ireland,  a five minute drive from the Irish sea and Mourne Mountains.

 

I have constantly been making since birth. Lego, dream catchers, my own clothes, DIY perfume, stone painting on beaches for others to discover... making my own treasure and wares has always been a constant in my life.

Both the natural world and art world are essential to me. Keeping a connection to nature keeps me grounded and is what often sparks ideas. My love of Art also fuels my ideas and creativity. In my opinion, the world would be a little bit numb without art.

I am now based close to the bubbly peaks of the Montserrat Mountains in Spain, near Barcelona city. It has been a gradual transition, but I finally earthed my roots here more permanently in early 2022.
