Nicola Bannister

Jewellery, Metalwork

In a world where buying less is so important, Nicola believes that jewellery you buy should be loved, easy wearing and unique.  Pieces that you shouldn’t want to ever take off.  Using as much recycled sterling silver and gold as possible, the whole range of jewellery is completely hand made by Nicola in her small workshop in Berkshire.

Nicola has a mission behind her work and collection called ‘The Collection of Cells’ which is on display at Open Studios Insight. The jewellery in the collection represents blood cells where one shaped ‘cell’ is never quite the same as another. With every sale from the collection, £1 is donated and split between Myeloma UK and Blood Cancer UK. Both charities are very close to Nicola’s heart as they help support patients and families who are affected by blood cancers. Nicola’s aim is to raise money and awareness but also for people who wear her jewellery to celebrate their own uniqueness and be proud of the characteristics that make each one of us so special.

Nicola takes on commissions and can repurpose sentimental jewellery.  As a trained goldsmith she can take on engagement rings, wedding bangs, celebration jewellery, crest engraved signet rings - anything that you are after.  Please get in touch via email or book to visit her workshop during September and October.
