Kerry Seaton, based between London and East Sussex, undertook The Goldsmiths’ Company apprenticeship for five years before completing an MA in Goldsmithing, Metalwork and Jewellery at the Royal College of Art. Kerry is passionate about the quality of craftsmanship and creates her pieces through traditional jewellery techniques. Kerry’s tactile treasures are designed with longevity at the forefront and their simplicity and refinement ensure their timelessness. Kerry prioritizes shape and aims for each piece to be balanced, which informs her selection and combination of precious metals and stones. She works with metals that are richly coloured and give a sense of weight, and stones that hold light.
The association of jewellery with romance, commitment and love appeals to Kerry, who enjoys working on such a small and intimate scale. Working always with the wearing in mind, Kerry Seaton uses traditional jewellery techniques to skilfully craft tactile treasures of understated and enduring beauty.
Selecting precious metals that lend weight and richness of colour along with stones that hold light, her work is restrained in its style, evoking calm and a sense of stillness.
Following a five year apprenticeship with The Goldsmith’s Company, Kerry completed an MA in Goldsmithing, Metalwork and Jewellery at the Royal College of Art. She now divides her time between London and East Sussex, where she has her own workshop.
