Telford and Wrekin

Jeweller, Metalworker & Upcycler

Liz Simmons is a young contemporary jeweller who has been creating jewellery for over 15 years. She began working in copper and silver when taking a jewellery design community access course whist studying Philosophy and Classical Civilisation at Bristol University. After University she worked at several designer jewellers in central Bristol, before taking a silver-smithing course at Bristol School of Art. There she explored different media and techniques in jewellery fabrication, and discovered a love of spoon making.

Last year she was awarded the ‘Welsh Artist of the Year 2012 Applied arts category’ for a sand cast sterling silver twig spoon with a hand wrought bowl. Winning this accolade has further encouraged me to develop my love of spoon making.

Her favourite techniques employ balling and globulation, piercing, doming, and creating surface texture using reticulation, hammering, and brushing techniques.

Her design influences are mainly drawn from nature, and employ both the use of recycling and the inclusion of vintage materials.

Liz has created the brand ‘Magpie Chique’, and is currently living in Shropshire creating unique pieces in her studio with the surrounding scenery as her inspiration. She loves making both bespoke contemporary silver and gold fine designer jewellery, and quirky kitsch fashion accessories including unique eccentric fascinators.

Liz will gladly undertake commissions to your specifications in either fine silver or gold, or create fashion jewellery in a range of new and recycled materials. She will also endeavour to accept repairs and remodelling of existing pieces.

Liz’s work is available in Ironbridge Shropshire, where she grew up, at Ironbridge Fine Arts, Merrythought, at Dale End. Her work is also available in Artful Expression Birmingham, The Silver Shop Bristol, little Hippo Presents, Telford, Tania Holland Gallery Bridgnorth and online at, and and can be viewed on Facebook.
