Shelby Fitzpatrick | Chain Reaction

15 Mar 2021

Shelby Fitzpatrick presents a new jewellery collection made specially for The Gallery this March. Shelby’s jewellery is marked by quality, colour and style. Chain Reaction features a rainbow collection of jewellery made from laser cut plastic, based on emerald cut shapes and facets, offering fun and playful adornment. Though originally from the USA, where she trained as a ceramicist and textile artist, Shelby moved to the UK to study silversmithing and jewellery at Kent Institute of Art and Design.

Three Strand Hexagon Necklace - sapphire and light blue, perspex | £120

My work has always been about exploring new approaches and this latest perspex jewellery combines colour with a sense of fun. You will find laser-cut shapes of frosted perspex that overlap and flow into other colours, all beautifully light and wearable.
