Jewellery by Sarah Cain & Roxane Ryan
Roxane and Sarah work together in their studio overlooking fields in rural Cambridgeshire with their three dogs sleeping at their feet. Both artists grew up surrounded by nature. Roxane spent her her childhood playing on the river next to her converted watermill home in Herfordshire; often rescuing and hand rearing abandoned wildlife. Sarah from County Durham spent most of her time horse riding on the North Yorkshire Moors and looking after her many pets. Creating Jewellery depicting British Wildlife is something that they love. The artists carve a mould which is fired and able to withstand silver clay being pressed into it . The silver clay is embelished by hand. It is then dried, fired, sanded and polished; no two pieces are the same.
Beadstorm Designs is a collaboration to two artists. Sarah Cain and Roxane Ryan have worked within the art industry for over fifteen years. Roxane has worked as a freelance illustrator specialising in watercolour portraiture and Sarah Cain gained a first class honours degree in Textiles and Fashion at Liverpool John Moores University in 1996.
Both artists have exhibited individually in a number of galleries prior to working together. Sarah worked within a successful art gallery in Huntingdonshire for seven years. Beadstorm Designs was born from a shared interest and desire to create beautiful elegant jewellery using fine-quality materials.
