Welcome to Catherine Hills Jewellery
My passion for jewellery is to create unusual and interesting pieces that people will admire and cherish.
“Distinctive,detailed and diverse. Catherine’s jewellery is for men and woman who value texture, organic form and individual statements from what they wear”.
Retail Jewellery Magazine, 2001
I had an obsession with drawing from a very early age and I discovered my individuality in creating three-dimensional work. I grew up in a house brimming with antiques, decorative art and ceramics, as both my parents were keen collectors and osteopaths. This undoubtedly mapped out my artistic journey.
My Grandmother gave me a silver charm bracelet as a young girl; I adored it and every year she added a new charm and I still treasure it today. This was my inspiration for creating my, ’Pod Charm Bracelet’ and ‘Cluster Pendant’ which are signature pieces in my collection.
“Catherine Hills makes deliciously tactile charm bracelets”. Kate Reardon, The Times, 2004
My biggest inspiration is nature and the human form and my work is influenced by the granulation technique of ancient civilisations.
My jewellery has a strong identity, with an emphasis on detail, movement and texture. All these combine to create stand out yet feminine, contemporary pieces. I hope you love them as much as I do.
