Emine Mine Thompson
I am a self-thought contemporary jewellery designer and maker with a design and 3D modelling background. 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. After more than 25 of years teaching design and 3D modelling, I started to create 3D wearable objects. 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 .
She also organises silver clay workshops to share the joy of creating jewellery with others.
