Cresta works from her home studio in Exeter making fine handmade sterling silver jewellery individually set against ceramic elements. She trained at the University of Plymouth and gained a three-dimensional degree. Inspiration comes from organic and found objects. She enjoys exploring surface decoration and pattern by working on different surfaces to impart texture. Clay is stained to introduce colour which contrasts with the silver. The intention is to carry the mark making process from one craftsmen’s material into another to create a cohesive and individual collection of affordable jewellery.
