Elizabeth Jane Campbell

Designer - Jeweller - Enameller

Elizabeth Jane Campbell graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2013, and then spent a year as Artist in Residence at Glasgow School of Art before establishing her own studio in Edinburgh. As well as developing her own work which has been exhibited across the UK and abroad, Elizabeth has been part of several collaborative projects. Elizabeth’s work can be seen in the permanent collection at The National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.

“My inspiration stems from concepts of visual literacy, and specifically, the idea of balance. Using these visual literacy theories we can break down our ‘ways of seeing’ into the simplest form – shape, colour, pattern etc. and this has always really appealed to me.

I try to communicate a personal sense of ‘balance’ through my work using geometric shapes, composition, colour and materials – creating simple contemporary jewellery.
I work with enamel, and enjoy experimenting with material relationships – whether that’s combining a material with enamel; using enamel on a different material; or simply attempting to mimic a material in enamel, such as stone or concrete. I like to use traditional enamelling skills, such as cloisonné, while always trying to put my own personal stamp on the technique.”
