About Shimell and Madden
Inspired by the universal and timeless language of geometry Shimell and Madden create modernist pieces that have a sense of the ancient. Fusing the worlds of contemporary design and traditional goldsmithing, their work combines recycled precious metal with unusual gemstones to create bold and distinctive fine jewellery.
Joining forces in 2010 Luke Shimell and Emma Madden collaborate on the crafting and concept behind each jewellery piece they create. Specialists in bespoke commissions, and predominantly working in 18ct gold and platinum, Shimell and Madden enjoy upcycling old pieces and reworking heirloom materials.
Hand-fabrication of drawn wire is at the core of Shimell and Madden’s making practice. From simplicity to complexity their designs are constructed from layering straight lines and arcs, exploring pattern and intersection. The extra strength afforded by the hand-drawn wire enables them to create delicate and durable designs.
