Cathy Newell Price designs and makes contemporary jewellery from her studio in Mortimer near Reading in Berkshire.
She uses a variety of techniques to transform precious metals to reflect botanical forms and scenes. These include chasing and repousse, direct casting and saw piercing. These are then combined with different surface treatments including enamelling.
Cathy is mostly self taught and started making silver jewellery as a teenager. She then studied Botany for her undergraduate degree and the combination of these two interests underpins everything she does.
Cathy teaches jewellery evening classes at Maiden Erlegh School in Reading and runs workshops in her Mortimer studio.
