About Abbie Gaiger

Abbie Gaiger is a jewellery designer and maker, originally from Hampshire, UK. She graduated in 2016 with a BA (Hons) in Jewellery Design & Related Products from Birmingham School of Jewellery, with her graduate collection being awarded runner-up of the RBSA Gallery Prize for Innovation & Creativity. She now continues to be based at the school as an Artist in Residence, where she continues to develop her unique work.

"My work draws on themes of geometry, symmetry and patterns found within mathematics, bringing together bold lines and graphic forms. I create fashion jewellery that combines hi-tech digital processes such as laser cutting with traditional metal skills like scoring and piercing, and I enjoy contrasting metal with unexpected new materials. Ultimately, my work aims to be statement-making and unconventional, while remaining wearable, playful and colourful."
