Meet Emily ~ self taught professional millefiori polymer clay artist, jewellery designer, sole trader and one woman show!
Born in London, brought up in York, found herself in Newcastle, and now working from a 300 year old farmhouse she calls home. Recently engaged, Emily lives with her fiancee Ian and their cat Bootsy.
Log fires keep them warm as she beavers away upstairs in her home studio, set in a stunning and secluded valley near the North Pennines. Surrounded by wild flower meadows, Emily and Ian live in a national area of outstanding natural beauty in Northumberland.
"I bring you bold, intricate arty little wonders that love to be intently looked at and are always noticed! By using bold black outlines and sharp sculpted images and vibrant colour, my jewellery becomes an art form to be worn and loved."
Achieving a top A grade at A Level Art in York, Emily worked mainly with clay and sculpture. She has a Criminology and Forensic Science Degree although surrounded herself with artists, musicians and performers throughout and after her studies in Newcastle.

Supremily Jewellery was founded in 2010 ~ starting as a therapeutic hobby which led to escaping the rat race and the wrong career! The business began as a stall at a local Sunday market selling a few necklaces, beads and earrings.
Now, seven years on, Emily is living out her creative dream life having grown the business out of pure love, hard work and sheer determination!
Emily also runs two other businesses alongside Supremily Jewellery ~ Wild Flower Trading, her ethical fair trade gift shop, and The Dread Bead Shop, her unique handmade dread beads. Links to both can be found at the bottom of the page.
