Marianne AndersonBorn: 1978
Place of Birth: Glasgow
Marianne Anderson graduated from The Glasgow School of Art in 2003 with an Honours Degree in Jewellery Design. Since then, Marianne has developed her exquisite jewellery from her studio in Glasgow. Working within a restrained palette of oxidised silver, 18ct gold, red garnets and white pearls, she creates luxurious and wearable collections that reference ornamental detailing and all things decorative. Inspired by traditional decorative forms found in architectural features like decorative ironwork, Marianne skilfully uses traditional jewellery techniques to make her collections - luxurious stone settings, intricate pierced patterns, and detailed surface texture all add to the allure of each piece. This combination of colour and artistry results in a treasury of unique and feminine pieces that are beautiful to wear.
'My interest is rooted in how we learn and draw from the past and return frequently to designs, motifs and patterns of historic and symbolic significance. By purposefully engaging with the past, my aim is to highlight the importance of ornament in a modern context. Far from superfluous, ornament has always had its own vocabulary and meaning and I try to engage with this through my work.' - Marianne Anderson.
