About Us

Athene

Athene studied first at Middlesex University and then at London Guildhall University’s Sir John Cass faculty of Art and Design, graduating in 1996 with a degree in Silversmithing, Jewellery and Allied Crafts.

During her degree she undertook varied placements, working with a Milliner and a Carpenter alongside the more traditional jewellery placement. Her interest in many different media has led to an interesting cross reference of disciplines, and a willingness to be open minded and inventive when applying techniques and using materials

Upon leaving university, Athene established a small retail gallery – ‘Fish’ – in Guernsey, promoting many up and coming young artists’ work alongside her own, before leaving the Island to travel. A trip which was expected to last six months became a voyage of over two years, visiting twenty different countries and exploring the artistic heritage of many cultures. During this time Athene collected many fascinating images of the natural world in various forms from which she continues to draw inspiration.

Athene now works from her studio in Guernsey and holds regular open evenings. Visits to the studio can be made at any time, by appointment. Please contact Athene if you would like to be included in the mailing list for future open evenings.

Sofia

Workshop assistant Sofia joined us in 2015. Since joining she has become an integral part of the business.

Sofia studied Art at Guernsey College of Further Education and graduated in 2015. Having spotted her work at the Greenhouse Gallery in July 2015, we knew she’d fit right in.

Sofia works alongside Athene in the workshop – spending ages selecting just the perfect pearls and stones for each individual piece of jewellery.
