About me

Emine Mine Thompson

I am a designer/maker of contemporary jewellery. I have a background in landscape design and 3D modelling. After more than 25 of years teaching design and 3D modelling, I decided to create 3D wearable objects. I work with metal clay and traditional silversmithing techniques.  My pieces reflect architectural and minimalist motifs and I use distinctive textures and patinas. I also use distinct techniques such as Mokume Gane and mixing different metals to achieve unique high-end products.

I work from my home-studio in Whitley Bay, UK. Since I was a little girl, I always liked jewellery. It is part of the rich Turkish culture I come from, and I always particularly liked silver jewellery and I still go to same jeweller’s shop in Istanbul whenever I am there.

All the jewellery are handmade by me. Although similar designs can be done, they are unique due to the hand-making process and this makes every item one of a kind.

I am a registered artist with the Network Artists North East and member of The Association for Contemporary Jewellery.
