Adele Kime

Location: New Mills   /  Genre: Jewellery

Artist Statement

Adele lives in Whaley Bridge creating jewellery in her canal side studio. For the last 22 years she has taught jewellery making workshops and courses in the High Peak within adult education and taught many local jewellers her skills.

She graduated in 2001 with a degree in 3D Design, specialising in jewellery and already possessing a HND in Textile Design. She has brought her love of these two disciplines together and applied them within her work. In 2002, she was given an award by the Crafts Council and became a Designer in Residence at Manchester Metropolitan University.

Adele draws inspiration from the beautiful Derbyshire countryside. This can be seen in her colourful hand painted anodised aluminium range which depict the details she observes in flowers, grasses and insects found in our hedgerows and meadows. Her silver jewellery incorporates textures, organic etched patterns and sometimes set stones. Other pieces are delicately cut to echo nature's growth and form.
Her jewellery has featured in many exhibitions in the UK and abroad. Her work has also been published in several contemporary jewellery books.
