WATERER SPIERS COLLECTION 2011
Award winning jeweller, Tania Clarke Hall set up her business nearly three years ago immediately after graduating with a first from Middlesex University’s BA Jewellery course and was selected to show at Galerie Marzee’s International Graduation Show which exhibits the work of top jewellery graduates from across Europe.
Within a year she had picked up a commendation award from the Goldsmith’s Craft & Design Council Award, reflecting both the quality of her design and craftsmanship. Success followed swiftly with her work being sold in the V&A Shop, Tate Modern and Kabiri. In March 2010, her ‘Festival’ collection, specially commissioned by Southbank Centre was launched.
Tania challenges the way in which leather is used within jewellery. She goes beyond the predictable; burning, colouring, slashing and moulding the cut edge to create graphic, sculptural pieces.
Her love of architecture, Japanese design and a degree in chemistry and archaeology have fuelled her passion for and provided her with a fresh, intelligent perspective on jewellery design.
Working from her studio close to Hatton Garden’s historic jewellery quarter, she is recognised for her playful, experimental approach and bold, elegant, highly wearable pieces.
