More About Hannah Bedford 

Hannah Bedford creates beautiful bespoke pieces of jewellery which utilize the traditional method of granulation. Bedford draws inspiration from the natural pattern that she observes in nature. Beford graduated from Birmingham School of Jewellery in 2004 and since has had her jewellery exhibited both nationally (UK) and internationally.

 I especially like her work and  love the balance between its organic nature and its traditional look. Another aspect of her work that appeals to me is how she uses the granulation to create unique settings. Bedford also uses different metals together as well as oxidization in order to create contrast and to enhance the texture of the granulation even more.

Pictured below are two of my favourite pieces from Bedfords collection.

Graunule ring - oxidised 
Granule ring with a scattering of 18ct yellow granules

Diamond ring set 
Cluster diamond ring with crown wedding band, set with diamonds in 18ct white and yellow gold
Berry necklace
 Silver necklace, comprised of granulated discs of fine silver granules
