Kelda is a designer and maker from the Scottish Highlands and is currently based in Wasps Studios, Glasgow. She creates sustainably conscious contemporary jewellery using recycled precious metals, each piece unique due to the nature of the handcrafted process.
Her work is centred around material connection, and the physical act of making. Using hollow forming techniques in conjunction with high pressure embossing to create tactile, enticing pieces - highlighting textures and details that might often go unnoticed. The softness of the pushed metal and the misleading perception of weight heightens curiosity and longs to be picked up. By incorporating traditional hand skills such as engraving which is often hidden creates another layer of intrigue.
