Hi, I’m Diana Greenwood, a jewellery maker endlessly inspired by the world around us.
Garden flowers find their way onto my charm bracelets and a recent fascination with figure skating has become the tiny blade on my ice-skating necklaces.
During a university design course, I accidentally fell in love with metal. With a Danish mother and a line of engineers on my father’s side, it seemed the perfect material to marry clean, Scandinavian design with technical possibility. I went on to study Silversmithing at the Royal College of Art and eventually found my way into making small pieces of jewellery.
With a touch of British charm and incredible attention to detail, I love to use silver and 18ct gold to hand-cut, construct and assemble my work. My garden and collection of vintage botanical prints are an endless source of inspiration as well as hours spent by the ice rink in pursuit of my daughter’s passion for figure skating.
My work is simple, contemporary and personal with the greatest emphasis on craftsmanship. Most of all, I love to see jewellery gifted and worn by the person it was thoughtfully intended for.
A few other things you might like to know:
Nothing makes me happier than taking Bella, my Cockapoo out for a walk and many of these outings have served as inspiration for my jewellery collections.
I adore being in the mountains, particularly those in Austria.
I have an immense passion for figure skating, having devoted a considerable amount of time to watching it over the years and can tell the difference between a lutz and a flip jump.
I enjoy looking after and cultivating my garden and over the years, I've figured out how to cultivate 'most' plants without killing them.
I am a Senior Fellow at Bishopsland Educational Trust and a member of The Sussex Guild.
