Emine Mine Thompson
I am a contemporary jewellery designer and maker . After more than 25 of years teaching design and 3D modelling in different settings, I started to create 3D wearable objects. Apart from making jewellery I also love to teach how to make jewellery in my jewellery making workshops.
I like to play with forms, surface textures, infills and patterns to create wearable objects that are not ornate nor elaborate but bold. I use combination of techniques to create my jewellery – traditional silversmithing, metal clay and sculptural techniques.
I come from Istanbul but now live in Whitley Bay with my husband and daughter. My background in design and 3D modelling and rich Middle-Eastern and Mediterranean culture influences my designs. I work from my studio at the Biscuit Box Studios in Newcastle upon Tyne. I am registered with Edinburgh Assay Office where my creations are hallmarked .

Highlights from a Review on Bussines and Industry Today
“Having spent over 25 years teaching design and 3D modelling, Emine Mine Thompson founded her creative business Silverkupe Jewellery in 2017. Coming from Istanbul, Emine’s designs are rich in Middle-Eastern and Mediterranean influence with a contemporary twist. Emine produces her jewellery from her studio at the Biscuit Box Studios in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Due to the handmade process, each product is unique. The one of a kind aspect to Emine’s selection of wearables is a definite unique selling point.
As well as offering an array of artisan and one of a kind jewellery, Emine also organises silver clay jewellery making workshops. The workshops provide a fun and alternative opportunity to master a new skill along with making your very own jewellery.
From pendants and necklaces to rings, bracelets and earrings Silverkupe Jewellery has it all. Designs incorporate bright colours and 24k gold with sleek silver making for an unmissable selection of jewellery. The products offer a contemporary twist on more traditional ideas, and are the perfect complement to outfits for a wide variety of occasions.” ~ Business and Industry Today
