Toby Cotterill Jewerllery
Toby is a jeweller and silversmith based in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire.
Toby makes unique, articulated jewellery inspired by the natural world and the process of making. He grew up on a farm in West Wales, and spent most of his childhood playing outside with his brothers and making things. His ideas stem from this early immersion in nature.
Toby uses traditional silversmithing techniques, forging sheet silver over steel stakes and into wooden formers using hammers and punches. Three- dimensional forms are articulated, fused, and finished with oxides or gold to create lively, humorous pieces of wearable sculpture.
