Christmas Blue Magpie – Artist Profile: Bronwen Gwillim

Bronwen makes wearable statement jewellery from repurposed and recycled industrial plastics. 

She is interested in the relationship between nature and plastic and is inspired by shapes and textures created, over time, by the forces of the weather and the sea. 

She sees herself as a plasticsmith working with a precious commodity and seeks to imbue these soulless materials with character by working their surfaces till their colours soften and they feel natural in the hand like a treasured pebble.  

Bronwen will be at the market on Saturday & Sunday.
