Intro
Iris Bodemer is an artist-led by instinct, with an unmistakable affinity for her materials. Ideas percolate in her mind over time and find a voice in her jewellery - things she cannot put into words.

Artist list

Iris Bodemer
I design jewellery just like I draw. The jewels are my drawings.
/ Iris Bodemer

Drawing into her materials, Iris explores their possibilities of use and expression and seeks simple solutions to the technical challenges of joining, closing, attaching. In one series of pendants, Juxtaposition, she considers how forms and structures come together, situating energetic, three-dimensional silver forms on top of – and in contrast to - a plain metal sheet. In Sound, Iris explores the noise, both aural and visual, of different elements and materials, combining silver and sections of tourmaline, sapphire, tiger’s eye and carnelian. Slices of beryl make symmetrical Rorschach-like patterns on silver brooches whilst elsewhere, metals and stones collide - aluminium and silver with fulgurite (fused quartz formed by lightning strikes on desert sand), agate and sapphires.
