I’m Imogen, the designer and jeweller behind Wild Bones Jewellery.
I’m a recent BA graduate in Jewellery and Silversmithing from the Birmingham School of Jewellery in the historic Jewellery Quarter. The idea for Wild Bones is taken from my second year final collection of the same name - the brand is designed to bridge the gap between chunky, macabre and delicate fine jewellery that can be worn in everyday life.
I chose this theme for my work because it perfectly tied together my lifelong love of design and Archeology - a career path I might have considered if I hadn’t fallen in love with jewellery making, a passion that has led to many amazing opportunities. Among these highlights was realising my dream of receiving a Goldsmiths Craft and Design Council award, which I achieved in 2019 for the 2D National Association of Jewellers (Pin Category).
After finishing university during the global pandemic and moving back home to Suffolk, I have set up my workshop in the beautiful countryside here - a setting that always inspires me. The pieces in my first available collection take their names from some of my favourite Suffolk towns and villages, paying homage to places I truly adore.
I hope you like my work as much as I love making it,
My workshop based in Suffolk
Every order is handmade at my new bench, (a recent graduation present to myself) which I've managed to not burn yet, but I'm sure will see a lot of loved damage throughout my lifetime and beyond.
I can't forget to introduce my trusty workshop dog Artie. He enjoys runs on the many shorelines around our workshop, sleeping under my bench, the daily biscuit from the postman and giving side-eye to just about everyone.
