An Unexpected Art Work Career
"Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans" John Lennon once said. The statement is a perfect summation of Emma Swailes' career in design. Having aspired to become a furniture designer, Swailes' career took an unexpected turn when she dropped out and instinctively became an ace jewelry designer instead.
An artist's true calling usually comes when they least expect it and the best reward for a true artist is the feeling of creating something that is unique and memorable.
And hence began a career in jewelry design where her speciality is making custom jewelry for people. She now has her own show at ShowFlipper.
She says, "As a youngster, I had a fascination with creating things; it was the only thing I truly understood. The academic teachings of school baffled me, however to design & create a physical piece made complete sense and as an adult this continues to be the case."
Jewelry can go way beyond just being ornaments being donned for fashion. A piece of Jewelry often represents a memory, an incident, or a lesson for the person who possesses it. Her art work always manages to be more than just ornaments that are worn occasionally.
They become signature pieces. All her creations on SF Studio prove the distinct work that she does with each piece she works upon.
Emma Swailes' specialization lies in hand fabricating and handmade jewelry. The beauty of hand fabricated pieces is that despite being similar, no two pieces are identical. This makes each piece of jewelry beautifully unique and different from the other.
For an artist who strives to create something that leaves an impact, Emma has come a long way. She designs custom jewelry pieces like earrings and neck pieces; her special ones being the tiny brollies, that she is famous for.

Her signature works such as the brolly often revolve around British culture and she has been praised for maintaining a certain British-ness with her art work. Her jewelry for sale, that she makes personally; often by sawing sheet metal or soldering, is the perfect way to commemorate an exceptional event in your life.
You can buy jewelry online made by her on her show at ShowFlipper. She says, "If you can dream it, I can create it!"
"Life can be serious, and there is loads of serious jewelry out there, so I try and keep it light hearted. My general rule is, if it doesn't make me smile at the bench peg, it doesn't get made." says Swailes, who believes that each piece she designs is unique and different from the other.

Creating Memories and Not Just Jewelry
Designing pieces that have an emotional value attached to it is a touching experience altogether and for an artist, it is an honour to create something that marks an impact on someone's life. When there is a memory attached to a piece of metal, it cannot be called just an ornament.
"One of my favourite custom pieces was a miniature bookcase for the mother of a customer. It was made for her 70th birthday. The bookcase had small items in it that represented her hobbies and interests; Sudoku, books, and a ruby set in a glass shape setting to represent a glass of Campari, her favourite tipple." says Emma who takes pride in creating pieces that are specially designed for a customer.
The most memorable piece of design for Emma was the one she designed for a cancer patient who had battled cancer successfully. Swailes had designed a custom-made necklace for a customer who wanted to celebrate five years free from breast cancer.
Each cuddy bead on the necklace represented each year that she successfully battled the disease. It was a priceless moment for Emma to watch the lady who was overjoyed and tearful at the outcome. What more could an artist want? Imagine the joy of being to deliver something that has the capacity to touch someone's life so deeply.
