Fiona DeMarco trained at Sir John Cass Faculty, London Guildhall University for four years graduating in 1996 with a BA (Hons) Silversmithing, Jewellery and Allied Crafts.
Fiona was a recipient of the Clerkenwell Award in 1997 which enabled her to set up her own workshop within London's Jewellery quarter.
Fiona DeMarco's exquisite contemporary jewellery is designed and lovingly handmade in her Surrey based studio workshop specialising in 18ct gold and sterling silver in a variety of finishes; satin, polished and oxidised.
Satin = For a subtle contrasting sheen.
Polished = Eye-catching, sparkles and catches the light.
Oxidised = Dramatic yet subtle shiny qualities.
Designed to compliment all skin tones. Fiona's pieces are designed to be both casual or dressy depending upon its style and the outfit with which it is worn.
Her signature combination of (intricate yet dynamic) hand-forged clusters of petal shaped discs, drops and granules set on wires move in motion sympathetically with the wearer as if alive.
Fiona often finds that jewellery evolves as she works directly with the materials themselves. This leads to exiting and innovative new designs which are individual in their final form.
Fiona DeMarco's inspiration is driven by both observation and a vision of organic forms. The result is pieces which are both comforting and inspirational.
