dee barnes colourful handmade jewellery at iapetus.co.uk
Dee Barnes is a mixed media jewellery designer. Her main source of inspiration is colour. From the soft pinks and yellows of Venice to the slate greys and mossy greens of Yorkshire; all influence her. Dee originally specialised in hand built ceramics but with a young family and running a business she struggled to find the time. She then realised creating component based jewellery was her true calling!
Dees background in ceramics has allowed her to develop unusual, surface patterns or textures. She uses many medias such as paint, copper foil, rose gold plate, silver or gold leaf and resin to create her unique designs. All of Dees designs are one-off, handmade designs that she makes herself in her studio in Leicester. We stock her two amazing, colourful collections; Colourfield and Crystal Rocks.
At iapetus we spend a lot of time carefully sourcing and picking the pieces we offer. Everything you see has been crafted to a high standard, ethically sourced, be that made in the UK or fairly traded from our International artisans, and lastly is quirky and unusual - something which should surprise, delight and inspire you to gift buying greatness!
