Sally Lees Contemporary Jewellery
Sally has a passion for making beautiful things. She is a metalworker at heart and uses her traditional jewellery making skills and those of printing and dying aluminium to create stylish original jewellery. After studying art and design in the North of England Sally was selected to have a studio amongst the wealth of talent at Cockpit Arts in London. Her ethos is to hand make her products not manufacture them. Sally is featured on The Crafts Council Directory. and has appeared on the BBC’s Learning Zone. She currently also teaches jewellery at the Mary Ward Centre in central London and has taught jewellery making at Cockpit Arts, Designercourses, Greenwich Community College and London Metropolitan University. Her cufflinks are featured in the jewellery making books: ‘Anodized! Brilliant Colours and Bold Designs in Aluminium’ by Clare Stiles and ‘Coloured Aluminium Jewellery: Design and Make’ by Lindsey Mann; and her jewellery is also featured in ‘Colours and Textures of Jewellery’ by Nina Gilbey and Beckkie Ora Cheeseman. In 2016 Sally was commissioned by the Houses of Parliament to make a collection of jewellery inspired by and to accompany Mary Branson’s New Dawn light sculpture celebrating women’s suffrage. In 2018 she was re-commissioned to re create the collection with additional items and new colour combinations.
