Madeleine Spencer: Horizon Brooch


1 in stock


Madeleine Spencer Horizon brooch is a striking design in silver and  brass. Abstract in form, it is also suggestive of place. In its horizontal form and zig-zag folds, it echoes the landscape of the Norfolk coast.

This is hardly surprising as that is where Madeleine lives and works. She is an independent artist and jeweller living on the beautiful North Norfolk coast, UK.

Madeleine has been working as a jeweller for more than fifteen years. Her love of drawing continues to be an integral part of her practice as a metal-smith.

Her training is visible through the delicacy of her work and attention to detail she applies to each and every piece. This, combined with the time-worn patinas created through a process of salvaging and re-shaping, results in unique pieces of wearable jewellery full of story-telling detail.

Madeleine chooses to reuse metal wherever possible, melting down old, reclaimed silver and gold in order to make new work celebrating its visible history.

Madeleine Spencer is one of GroundJewels selected artists.
