My name is Lorraine Hitt and I am the designer and maker behind Elsiem Jewellery, based in Cambridge. My formal design career disciplines include graphics, 2D and 3D design, furniture and architectural interior design. They are not only prevalent in my jewellery designs but have provided me with invaluable skills for developing my jewellery brand; all inspired by my love of simple visual forms, incorporating functionality and practicality.
As far back as I can remember, I’ve had a passion for stylish, simple and practical clever design which inspires my wearable, contemporary and often edgy jewellery. I currently handcraft my designs using mainly brass and sterling silver, sometimes combining the two, drawing on my metalsmith training from both an experienced goldsmith and self-teaching and experimenting. Most designs are made to order, especially for you. I have just released a new collection of 3D printed designs. Please see my giveaway over on the Urban Makers Instagram account.
