About Jodie Gearing
The home of the work designed and made by contemporary Jewellery designer, Jodie Gearing.
Working with platinum, palladium, gold, silver and precious stones to create beautiful and tactile pieces, Jodie is passionate about the stories attached to the commissions she designs. All pieces she creates are crafted by hand and personal to the client.
Jodie was born and raised in the Bedfordshire countryside. She had an innate love for Art and Design so pursued this avenue by moving to Canterbury to complete a Foundation Course at The University for the Creative Arts. It was here that she discovered a love of metal work and jewellery when she experimented with mixed media. Paper, fabric, masking tape and paint turned to plastics and then copper, silver and gemstones – she had discovered jewellery design!
The next steps were a degree in Goldsmithing, Silversmithing and Jewellery at The University for the Creative Arts in Rochester where she won several awards and bursaries for her creative designs. After working in the Jewellery Industry for a year for a bespoke jeweller, Jodie fell in love with the stories of the clients she worked with and relished the education part of the job – passing on knowledge of precious stones, metals and design to customers to enable them to make an informed decision.
Many of Jodie’s jewellery designs are inspired by the beauty of natural materials. Clean lines sit comfortably next to natural textures and precious gemstones. You can choose to create a design based on Jodie’s natural style, or go 100% bespoke to design a unique piece of jewellery to your own specification.
Jodie is proud to offer only ethically sourced materials and gemstones in her pieces, working with only with trusted bullion and gemstone suppliers well known for their ethical creditials.
