Storytelling through jewellery

  • • Sian grew up in the Dorset countryside
  • • She opened her first studio in 1986 in East London
  • • She has exhibited at Goldsmiths Fair, London Craft Week, and Sotheby’s Jewels

Sian Evans fell in love with the craft when visiting museums filled with archeological jewellery as a child. She went on to become a student of the master stone carver Charlotte De Syllas, who taught her lapidary techniques. Sian is a tireless innovator and perpetual researcher, resulting in contemporary pieces that are truly unique and mesmerising. While she draws on ancient techniques to create her jewellery, Sian also brings her own creative magic to the process. Her inspirations lie in a variety of places: European and British Archaeology, the geology of Britain, botanical structures of plants from 18th-century drawings and medieval goldsmith carvings. Sian carefully studies the past and marries it with the modern-day capabilities of technology.
