Hilary Bravo

Material: Jewellery | Location: Devon
The medium of Hilary Bravo’s jewellery is Papier-mâché, which she has developed and refined to create fully wearable and robust jewellery. Layers of various paints, inks, foils, gold and silver leaf are laid onto a metal base plate and then sealed into place with a thick glossy coating of resin. This emphasises the different qualities of the materials used and also makes them entirely waterproof.

Hilary lives and works in Devon, experimenting all the time with different colours and compositions. She takes her inspiration from everything around her, making notes and sketches on the things that catch her attention. She is fascinated with colour and the different emotions that it can provoke.
