Collection: Bronwen Gwillim : Jeweller : Angle

Bronwen makes wearable, sculptural jewellery from waste plastics and resin. She collects plastic from industrial companies and from the beaches where she lives on the South Pembrokeshire coast and cuts and forms it using traditional jewellers tools. She then sets it into a composite resin (which incorporates any waste plastic dust created in the making process) so very little is thrown away.

“I try to imbue waste plastic with a new character by working its surface till shapes and colours soften and it feels natural in the hand.  The forms and textures I use reference those worn by the sea and allude to the fact that these ubiquitous and non-biodegradable materials will be sadly washing up on our beaches for many years to come."

Originally trained as a jeweller and silversmith, Bronwen combines waste plastic with recycled silver so challenging our ideas of ‘preciousness’. Her pieces are mostly one-offs or variations on long running themes inspired by the geology, boats, flora, fauna  and marine life of the Angle peninsula.
