Cecile Gilbert, who launched her Tiki range of jewellery in 2012, was selected as one of IJL KickStarters of 2016. Her medium is polyester resin, which she combines with oxidised sterling silver.
Inspired by Bakelite jewellery of the 1920s and mid 20th century design, Cecile has created a range of contemporary designs that reflect those qualities, whilst adding a 21st century sophistication. She has developed cut-out and recasting techniques in her resin work, which allow her to experiment with geometric shapes and patterns. Her ranges include bangles, bracelets, necklaces, earrings and brooches.
