I am a jewellery designer-maker creating handmade jewellery from my workshop in Havant, Hampshire. Having completed a BA(Hons) Jewellery and Silversmithing degree at the School of Jewellery in Birmingham, I moved down to the South coast to start my career as a goldsmith. After gaining valuable experience on the bench working for jewellers within the region, I decided to set up Emma Burfoot Jewellery. I wanted to offer customers a personal experience developing bespoke commissions and collections in silver, gold and platinum.
Alongside commission work, I design ranges of jewellery leaning towards a linear and minimal style as this is the kind of work which I am naturally drawn to. I like to have crisp, clean lines within my work and feature contrasts in surface finish and colour.
