About |

I'm Dawn Meaden-Johnson and I use adapted traditional Jewellery and silversmithing techniques to create innovative and colourful three dimensional fine art jewellery from hand painted Anodised Aluminium.

I'm interested in creating contemporary abstract pieces with a narrative. Sometime the narrative is formed prior to making, and often a simple narrative is developed into a more complex idea during the making journey. 

I enjoy the challenge of working with Anodised Aluminium’s unusual properties, it’s a difficult material to work with but very rewarding. Not being able to solder components requires much thought during the design  and making process, but I find this problem solving aspect intensely satisfying.

I'm a Contemporary Jeweller

I have a passion for making brooches, as these express my design journey for offering surprising colourful and three dimensional works.

I do make other styles of jewellery too!

I'm a metal artist

I love colour and once I discovered Anodised Aluminium it seemed natural to add metal to my paintings. 

I'm a graduate Silversmith of  The Birmingham City University School of Jewellery

And I worked there for almost 10 years developing and managing their prestigious Short & Bespoke course programme projects.
