Caitlin Hegney Jewellery
Award-winning local jewellery artist
Jewellery artist Caitlin Hegney creates handmade silver and wooden jewellery that resonates with the ancient past. She is based in Helensburgh, on the West coast of Scotland, and designs and makes in the tranquillity of her garden studio.
Caitlin looks for rhythms and patterns that transcend ancient times, interpreting them for the present day. Drawing is at the roots of her practice. She uses hand-made tools to translate the expressive quality of her sketches into precious metals and hand-mixes pigment recipes to dye wooden surfaces rich shades of blue.
An award-winning artist, Caitlin has undertaken residencies at Cove Park and at The Glasgow School of Art, from where she graduated. She has exhibited in Australia and widely in Europe including the UK, France and Denmark. As well as her jewellery practice, Caitlin facilitates workshops, focusing on material resourcefulness and engaging children with ancient craft skills.
You can view Caitlin’s new collection as part of Shine 2020 at The Goldsmiths Centre.
