Dawn Gear


Dawn’s jewellery is created at her home studio in The New Forest, where she is inspired by her colourful garden and assisted by her two cats!  Her background is in silversmithing, incorporating other precious metals and semi-precious stones, and she loves to make contemporary and unusual earrings in particular, whilst experimenting with new techniques and materials.

Dawn is currently somewhat obsessed with making earrings using techniques in wire crochet, using either sterling silver or enamelled copper wire.    The wire creates contemporary, lightweight, fun earrings in a wonderful range of colours.  It also allows for more sculptural and dramatic three-dimensional shapes, and can be combined with silver accents and semi-precious gemstones.

“I love the opportunities new materials give to expand design opportunities, add colour or texture to my jewellery.  I also love to try new ideas and to keep learning.”
