Silver jewellery, and copper vessels, inspired by my previous career as a cell biologist in Cambridge. Now living and working in Shropshire, I design and make individual pieces.

MIST

Julia Foggin (Mist Jewellery)

“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 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.

Julia has a degree in Graphic design. After working in the industry for several years the ‘smithing’ in her blood took root when she tried some silversmithing courses. Once trained she decided to make it her career and continues exploring and expanding her repertoire.
