Nettie Birch makes fold-formed jewellery using aluminium, copper and sterling silver. The technique folds sheet metal and compresses and stretches them by hammering. Once opened, beautiful flowing organic shapes are formed. The jewellery ranges from large, sculptural, statement pieces to more wearable pendants and earrings. More recently she has added bowls and art pieces to her collection.
Nettie, a self-taught jeweller, works from her studio by the Thames in South East London.
