“Silversmithing is in my blood! Like my blacksmith ancestors, I love manipulating and forming metal. I beat silver into delicate, organic shapes adding freshwater pearls with irregular characteristics and iridescent colours to create unique, highly feminine pieces.” Julia Foggin hails from Lancashire but is now based in Shropshire where she works from her beautiful workshop and gallery called MIST in the Ironbridge Gorge. At the Maws Craft Centre, she designs and makes her distinctive hammered silver jewellery, from tiny ear studs to intricately constructed statement pieces. As well as producing readymade pieces, she welcomes commissions, so you can choose your own colours and styles. She also oﬀers a wedding service making bespoke jewellery for brides and bridesmaids.
