Amanda Doughty presents 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.

About

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. 

Collection Highlights

These pieces are available to purchase from the collection, please call Amanda for further details.

Image shown is a detail of seven necklaces together. £160- £180 each.

Long Necklaces
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.

Made in matt silver and 18ct gold, each pair £230.

Round;
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.
