Louise Parry

2016 QEST Scholar - Silversmithing

Louise is a silversmith and jewellery designer who creates highly individual jewellery and timepieces in gold, silver, platinum and palladium. She specialises in commission work, including wedding and engagement rings and remodelling a client’s own jewellery. She also works with a British horologist who hand makes bespoke mechanisms for Louise to incorporate into her silver and gold clocks, which she often insets with diamonds and stones.

In 2014 Louise became a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths at Goldsmiths’ Hall, London and in 2016 she was the winner of Craft and Design Magazine’s best non- furniture piece for her diamond set ‘Black Headlight’ Clock.  Her QEST Scholarship funded a two-week residential course on Shetland with QEST Scholar Rod Kelly to increase her silversmithing skills.
