The new collection of silver pieces, designed by Stothard, is unisex and features necklaces, pendants, bracelets, earrings and a keyring.
Stothard is known for her wire and willow sculptures of animals, which can be found in gardens and public spaces worldwide, including the Prince of Wales’ private residence at Highgrove and in the gardens of Raymond Blanc’s restaurant, Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons in Oxfordshire.
Each piece in the new collection is individually handmade from hallmarked sterling silver, with fishing floats created from Whitby jet, amber, lapis lazuli, turquoise, amethyst, and green and rose quartz.
She said: “I wanted to pay tribute to them with my sculpture ‘Herring Girls’, which now stands beside the bandstand near Whitby’s West Pier.
“But I also approached W Hamond with an idea for a range of jewellery. I was thrilled that they loved the idea: the result is a beautiful collection of over 140 pieces, all based on herrings and fishing floats – they’re mini sculptures as well as being wearable jewellery for both women and men.”
Chris Sellors, owner of W Hamond, added: “Having seen first-hand the fabulous work Emma had created in Whitby, it was a simple decision when the opportunity arose to collaborate on an accompanying jewellery collection
“We are proud of the reputation W Hamond holds in providing original and appealing jewellery designs, using both local inspiration and locally sourced Whitby jet. The collection ticks both these boxes – and more – and we know our customers will love them.”
