Samuel Waterhouse

Samuel is a self-taught jeweller having been introduced to jewellery making whilst studying English Literature at the University of Manchester. He began to teach himself in 2014 and has been creating his own work ever since.

Samuel begins each piece of work by creating a specific alloy of gold. By creating these alloys Samuel is able to combine various colours of gold within a single piece in order to create effective pattern within his work, often oxidising/blackening the exposed silver components of a piece to create dramatic contrast.
