Sussex based designer Phoebe Sherwood is known for the for way she playfully interprets natural form using a combination of materials such as wood, silver and gold. The creative mind behind Phoebe Jewellery, gets much of her inspiration from her English upbringing and Scottish heritage, as well as wildlife, and objects that she spots whilst out walking her dog, Ernie. Phoebe uses her skills as an illustrator to record and stylise these observations, and later sculpt and refine them in the studio, each piece uniquely fine-crafted with a contemporary edge. Phoebe began making jewellery whilst studying Art & Design at Brighton City College. After working as a trainee jeweller for four years, she set out to design and craft her own original collections.
In her first three years of business, Phoebe released four nature inspired collections which have gained a strong celebrity following as well as recognition by the press.
