Esmé is a jeweller and multi-disciplinary craftsperson.

Esmé’s practice connects to the natural world, exploring ecological issues and the relationship we have with our own environments. Working mainly in precious metals and using the ancient process of lost wax carving, Esmé makes jewellery and decorative pieces. Her work is inspired by the beauty she finds in objects and natural forms gathered for her ongoing collection of found, precious and curious items: rocks, shells, bees found in the street, metal objects and antique photographs. Her recent work is a collection of jewellery examining the idea of wilderness within rural and urban spaces in a 21st century context, encouraging us to see, value and protect the scarce patches of wildness that remain.
