Alison Evans has an international reputation for her distinctive contemporary jewelry based on the ancient techniques of chainmail. Her work explores the contrast between the natural environment and the manmade and industrial world, to produce a unique style.
All her links are made by hand using 18 carat gold, silver and titanium, either combining two or more metals to produce patterns, or using precious or semi-precious stones to create layers of color and texture for necklaces, bracelets and rings.
Working from her converted barn studio on the family farm in rural East Sussex, it’s a perfect place to observe order, repetition and growth in nature and the changing seasons. The different shapes and forms that Alison sees on a daily basis are subtly transformed using her own personal visual language into necklaces, bracelets and rings, both sensual and comfortable to wear.
Appearing regularly at Goldsmith’s Fair, London and NY NOW, New York, Alison has also been represented by Sotheby’s, London; Barney’s, New York; the V&A Museum, London and Loot, Museum of Art and Design, New York. Her work is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh and features in galleries within the U.K., U.S.A and France.
