Born in London Alice Barnes was always influenced by the strong architectural lines that surrounded her whilst growing up. She now draws complex beauty from the simplest of forms to make elegant, contemporary jewellery with meticulous attention to detail. Her work is influenced by the cuts, folds and repetition used in paper art, and draws on lines, angles and repetitive shapes for inspiration.
Emulating stiff pleated fabric, shards of reflective glass and folded paper, the Pleated Collection has an art deco like quality with a contemporary edge. Each design has been delicately hand carved from jewellers wax, cast in precious metals and matt finished to give a soft, subtle sheen.
