About Hannah Bedford

Hannah Bedford skilfully combines the ancient art of granulation with design innovation for a contemporary signature look. Influenced by organic growth and the ever-changing movement of water, Hannah cultivates new ways to embellish designs with delicate droplets of gold.

Sculptural waves are joined in granule whorls, statement jewels are artfully encrusted and fine granulation interlaces or scatters across surfaces. Contrasting precious metals add tone and richness to Hannah’s aesthetic.

Hannah offers Fair-trade and recycled precious metal options as well as certified ethical diamonds and gems. Each piece is meticulously handcrafted in her London studio, where Hannah also works to commission.

Meet Hannah

Hannah Bedford is renowned for her work using Granulation, an ancient art form in which jewellery is adorned with fine granules of precious metal. The technique dates back over 5,000 years and designs from Eturia are particularly famous, in part due to the mysteries surrounding the process.

Granulation is an extremely delicate and time intensive process. Hannah handcrafts each unique granule on a charcoal block before they are cleaned and individually applied to form her complex designs. The bonding of these minute precious granules requires great skill and precision, a careful steady hand and, above all, patience.
