Imogen Belfield is widely considered to be one of the top, up and coming jewellery talents that London has seen in recent years. Inspired by her surroundings, Imogen Belfield's experimentalist jewellery takes influence from both architecture and nature combined – from the tallest building to the shyest flower. Delicate porcelain fragments are enrobed in the textured metals of gilded bronze, silver, steel and gold with pendants, rings and necklaces taking on an organic twist.

Imogen Belfield's hand crafted work represents many hours of careful thought and inspiration. Experimenting with porcelain, gemstones, metals, dyes and glaze and creating casts from paper, plastics and even fruits, she aims to create work that is at once beautiful and challenging; modern yet classic, bold yet subtle. Each piece created with porcelain fused into metal is unique and cannot be recreated, making this work incredibly covetable.

As a jewellery graduate from the Sir John Cass School of Art, Media & Design at The London Metropolitan University, Imogen's work has won awards from the British Jewellery Association, The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths and South Square Trust alike, exhibiting at the Islington Design Centre, the Structure and Function Gallery in Soho, Coutts London Jewellery week and London Fashion Week amongst others.
