Profile

Katie Roberts is an award winner jewellery designer, maker and goldsmith who has developed her own distinctive jewellery making technique and style by exploring the capabilities of precious metals. 

Originally from Aberystwyth, Katie has recently relocated her studio to Milton Keynes.

Katie's work is inspired by the natural structures, textures and rhythms of the coast, and in everyday life. Her work is controlled, subtle and three dimensional.

“I grew up near the sea and have always found the light on the water hypnotic and calming, I try to incorporate that feeling, along with a sense of intrigue into my designs.”

Working in silver, 18ct and 22ct gold, her work is often accented with contrasting metals, textures and subtle use of gemstones.
