Sally Lees has recently joined the British Society of Enamellers and has been selected to have her new work featured in their Autumn showcase this year at Galeri Caernarfon in Wales.

Sally Lees is an experienced jeweller and has worked from her studio at Cockpit Arts in London for the past twenty three years. In her career as a jewellery she has worked mainly with aluminium and silver and projects include creating a collection for the Houses of Parliament to celebrate women’s suffrage and making plaques for Camden Council Business Awards. She has been featured in many publications and magazines and has shown her jewellery at numerous shows.

During the pandemic Sally was awarded an Arts Council Grant to develop her professional practice which she used to spend time learning with Master Crafts women Jane Short and Jessica Turrell. She spent time at Jane Short’s Brighton studio learning how to engrave for enamelling on silver and  with Jessica Turrell she explored and experimented with enamelling techniques on copper. All of the techniques she learned during her training have fed into her new body of work.

For the exhibition at Galeri Caernarfon Sally has been inspired by her love of the Mediterranean islands and their coastlines with their deep and shallow waters and their solitary beaches. Her exploration of the myriad of colours and textures of these coastlines has led her create a collection of bold and striking enamelled jewellery coupled with semi precious stones and beads, silver or gold coated chain and wire.
