Jim Stringer / Quirky Metals
Based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, I design and make quirky pieces of metalwork and jewellery.
I have been a metalworker for over 30 years and work in all metals. Since 2013 I have worked predominantly in pewter.
My designs, exhibited at Pewter Live, were awarded First Prizes in 2014 and 2015.
My wife, Laura, and I collaborate on many of the designs which I make in my workshop.
Recently, work has been inspired by the natural world, flora and fauna.
At BCTF I will be exhibiting award winning designs "Hook, Line & Sinker" and "Silver Birches"
night light holders as well as launching a new range of pieces "Bugs & Crawlies" which will include
hand raised bowls and wall art embellished with handcrafted insects.
