Sian Hamilton

I am Sian Hamilton, a Jeweller, Editor and Author, and the inspiration behind Hamilton Jewellery. I’m a passionate designer who graduated in 1991 with a BA (Hons) in 3D Design and I’ve been in the creative design industry ever since. At university I specialised in metals and jewellery design in particular, with a minor study in ceramics.

 

One of the highlights of my career was being a prominent designer at W. Moorcroft PLC for 8 years and my pieces are still widely found online and in the collections of many Moorcroft fans (under the designer name Sian Leeper).

I now concentrate on jewellery and have been the Editor of a magazine called Making Jewellery for 7 years. Making Jewellery is a monthly publication sold across the UK in major supermarkets and WHSmiths. It includes step-by-step projects to create beautiful and varied jewellery pieces for those wanting to learn to make jewellery as a hobby or business. Currently I have 8 books published, 4 I have written completely and a further 4 I have compiled with an introduction and techniques section written by me and projects contributed by other designers.  Each book is a ‘how-to’ book and 7 are on jewellery.

 

As a jeweller I’m known for specialising in metal clay. I use a lot of silver clay in my own jewellery designs and love to teach others how to use this really versatile material. I currently run classes in the North West corner of the Surrey/Hampshire border, around Camberley and Farnborough.
