Norman Eames - Download a PDF leaflet
Norman is a former aerospace engineer from Salford. He turned his engineering skills towards the making of jewellery from polyester resin after noticing the beauty of natural forms cut in cross section. He achieves unique flow patterns in this material by alternating layers of blending colours, interrupted by accents of aluminium and other materials which he then cuts in cross section and polishes. The natural variations in this process means that no two pieces are ever the same, making each piece of hand-crafted jewellery entirely individual.
