Brighton Maker Store 2019
We are delighted to announce that Brighton Maker Store will be back at Phoenix Brighton this November, alongside the Phoenix Festival of Printmaking.
We are a small group of creatives with years of experience of selling events for applied artists and designer makers. We believe in the value of designing & making beautiful, and desirable, functional objects by hand. We’ve always been authentic and sustainable.
You can buy beautiful objects from well-known designer makers at the Brighton Maker Store. Come and meet the makers and see their work, as well as a selection of their hand tools and materials.
We are pleased to announce the following Maker Store regulars will be back:
Amanda Doughty; understated luxury, contemporary jewellery for men and women
Kathie Murphy; resin jewellery
Ken Eardley; handcrafted individually designed pottery
Nicki Tarr; upholstery, chairsmith
Ruth Martin; print, paper, cards & curios.

See Amanda’s Brutalist collection and Long Necklaces at Tate Edit on the riverfront at Tate Modern this summer.
Amanda Doughty designs & makes contemporary jewellery for men and women.
Well known for her geometric, architectural inspired work using bold forms and hidden precious stones, Amanda sells through a small number of shows in the UK, although works mainly to commission.
She lives and works in Brighton UK, having set up her business at Cockpit Arts, Holborn, London in the early 1990’s.
These pieces are available to purchase from the collection, please call Amanda for further details.
Predominantly made from hematite with a bold stretch of coloured semi-precious beads offset. Stones include garnets, lapis lazuli, blue jade, yellow jade, spinel, aqua marine, goldstone, bamboo coral with oxidised silver chain and detail.
This collection draws on my life long love of round and hollow forms. Signature geometric shapes which have been key to my work throughout my career. The hollow circle – this time with a splash of coloured stones – emerald, sapphire, ruby and of course diamond.
Love this video from some special clients…
This lovely video made by clients, Yann and Hannah, shows us in my studio working on the texture of their handmade wedding rings. My studio is on the 4th floor of Phoenix Brighton and has great views across the city. You can catch glimpses of my tools and objects of inspiration that I have around me.
Each commission is different, it was important for Yann and Hannah to be a part of the making process.
