Abbie Dixon is a self-taught jewellery designer/maker working from her home just outside Belfast. She studied graphic design at the University of Ulster Belfast however she realised she was much happier at a workbench.
Her jewellery collection explores plant growth – the shapes and forms that occur in nature. She finds inspiration on frequent forest walks and is particularly excited by small details such as mosses and lichens.
Fossils and natural mineral formations, which often have a plant like structure, also fascinate her. She has always found these organic shapes appealing and enjoys finding ways to create them in metal.
Abbie crafts little jewellery sculptures in wax before they are cast in precious metal by the lost wax process.
