Maria Whetman's Profile
I call my little business Fluxplay Jewellery ; "flux n. flow; continuous succession of changes; substance mixed with metal etc. to assist fusion. play v. occupy oneself in activity, operation; free movement". (From the Oxford Popular Dictionary).
I am based in West Devon in the Tamar Valley where I have a small workshop and have been working as a jeweller, designer, maker and fully qualified teacher in high-schools and colleges since I graduated with a BA.hons in Jewellery design from Central Saint Martins School of Art & Design in the early 90's. Currently I am a part time lecturer at the Plymouth College of Art & Design in Devon.
The methods I use are traditional silversmithing and jewellery techniques, sitting alongside mixed-media and non-traditional approaches…
