Collection: Georgina Clark
Georgina divides her week between Soho and Hertfordshire. She has been with We Are Cuts salon for nearly ten years. Not wanting to give up either of her passions she combines her love of hard and soft materials, metal and hair. She says, ‘It works really well combining four days at We are Cuts and three days as a jeweller. Both are really creative, but very different.
‘I started doing an apprenticeship with an artisan blacksmith at a forge in Kew Bridge the year before I began working at We Are Cuts. Every Tuesday I would go there from 7am-7pm grinding, welding and working with the anvil. The blacksmith wanted me to go full-time but I wasn’t ready to give up hairdressing. I was gutted when it finished.’
A chance discovery of a silversmith led to a change in direction. She took short courses at London Jewellery Workshop learning cutting, soldering and basic jewellery techniques. Much of the work involved using similar principles to those she had learnt at the blacksmiths.
‘The best thing about jewellery is that you can sell it. It is a popular art form for people to buy. Now that the jewellery is paying for itself I can begin to create more sculptural pieces. The opportunity to create is an amazing position to be in. I love the process and want to keep making and watch my jewellery business grow.’
