Jewellery from Repurposed Plastic

I make statement, one-off pieces of wearable art jewellery from waste plastic. I collect, reuse and upcycle beach plastic from the beaches where I live on the Pembrokeshire coast. I cut, shape and form it by hand and combine with industrial waste plastic, recycled silver and resins (into which I recycle my own waste plastic dust.) I aim to keep my carbon footprint low, using mostly reclaimed materials and hand tools. I aim to throw very little away. I imbue these soulless materials with a natural, weather-worn character by working their surfaces till their colours soften and they feel natural in the hand. I use shapes and textures inspired by the sea and my walks on the foreshore at the bottom of my garden. “Celebrating women who are playful, expressive and thoughtful; my jewellery is fuelled by a delight in the natural world and a desire to protect it.”

Story and ethos

Commissions: I love working with clients to make a special piece. Just give me some starting points, it could be your favourite shapes and colours, a dress you love or even a painting! I’ll come up with some ideas and mock up some options and we’ll take it from there. I like the collaborative process and find it stimulating to pay close attention to all the details and getting it right so it expresses both our personalities. It’s a lovely experience for both sides and an ideal gift for yourself or someone special. Do send me an email and lets start a conversation about what you might like and we can talk about prices too. “Bronwen’s designs are abstract but reflect the natural world - this is what I love about her jewellery” Eileen Powell
