about barbara ryman

I have been a Jeweller and an Enameller for more than thirty years. Shaping and manipulating metal gives me great enjoyment. There are many techniques that add exciting creativity to jewellery making such as piercing, etching, texturing and the many forms of vitreous enamelling.

For my own work, it is the inclusion of enamel that has kept me particularly intrigued and excited for so long; it has become an integral part of my creative language. Since 2001, I have had the opportunity to study Japanese enamelling techniques in Nagoya, Japan. I have visited there six times, with my last trip in April 2012.

Through my teaching I can introduce my students to this beautiful and intimate craft; I can pass on the knowledge and experience that was shown to me.
