Emily Frances Barrett is an Artist and Jeweller based in East London, where she is currently an artist in residence at Sarabande, the Lee Alexander McQueen Foundation.
As a self taught jeweller, she works intuitively with her materials from precious metals and stones, to found and organic objects such as flowers, shells, feathers, mud larked clay pipes and river worn glass. With her unbounded approach to materials she creates unique pieces, which are refined yet imperfect and full of intrigue, woven with stories from another place and time.
Over the last year Emily has worked with many designers, creating jewellery to accompany their collections. Most recently she collaborated with David Koma for his SS20 collection, using butterfly wings and porcupine quills inspired by his trip to Kenya. She has also created pieces for Jordan Luca SS20, Danshan AW19, Roberts -Wood AW19 and Olubiyi Thomas AW19.
