ERA Jewellery


Im Elizabeth Handley, my jewellery company is ERA. Im 19 and have just finished my last year of 6th form at Queen Katherine School, Kendal. Now ready for my gap year, then a degree in Metalwork and Jewellery at Sheffield Hallam.

Ive always been arty and liked designing, when I discovered a degree in jewellery I decided to investigate. I went on an adult education course in Silversmithing, which was brilliant. I learnt a lot and I realised how much I like doing this. I was also able to do jewellery as my main project for Design and Technology A level, finishing with my first ever exhibition, Beginnings at Farfield Mill Sedbergh. Because of the amount of jewellery I had to produce I have been able to experiment, and had to develop skills on my own.

I have learnt a lot but I know there is still so much more to learn.......
