Mixing metals, textures and unexpected materials to elegant effect.
Alison Fern Jewellery is a brand synonymous with thoughtful designs, crafted carefully by hand.
Formally an Art History Graduate, Alison went on to work for TATE (gallery) for ten years before starting her eponymous jewellery brand.
Now London based, and in response to her growing urban experience, collections marry ideas of femininity and strength. Form often takes shape from Alison’s love of art and the signature style is modern and fresh, mixing metals, textures and unexpected materials.
More recent collections see Alison also draw on her coastal upbringing, working closely with natural materials such as pearls, glass and precious stones.
The pieces are always well made and well priced, aiming to be within the new wave of attainable statement and luxury for the everyday.
Collections marry ideas of femininity and strength.
'I use quality materials such as 14k gold fill and 22k gold plated sterling silver because I want pieces to last, albeit the jewellery to be wearable. Shape and form frequently take inspiration from my art background and two-tone metals add interest to soft sculptural lines. The jewellery can be worn alone or mixed and layered to create a unique look'.
The brand is growing in popularity and pieces have recently appeared in the Press; publications such as The Sunday Times and Stylist Magazine.

Each and every piece of jewellery is crafted by me and by hand. As such there may be slight differences and variations between pieces. This makes your jewellery unique. Alot of the measurements on the site are approximate to the nearest millimetre or centimetre.
My focus is on quality so, ALL the silver used is sterling silver and ALL the gold is 14k gold filled or 22k gold sterling silver.
Sterling silver is an alloy of 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals, usually copper. This gives the silver more strength and high precious metal content, ideal for jewellery.
Gold filled is an actual layer of gold, pressure bonded to another metal, usually jewellers brass. The Gold used is usually 14 carat.
Gold-filled is made from solid ‘Gold’ and ‘filled’ with other alloys such a jewellers brass. It wears like solid gold because its outer surface is solid gold. Gold-filled is created by using heat and pressure to fuse a layer of Karat Gold to a copper, brass or other base metal and the bond produced is a permanent one.
Gold-filled offers all the same physical characteristics as solid Gold such as beauty, durability, and strength, but at a fraction of the cost. With reasonable care is will last a lifetime. It is more valuable than gold plated and tarnish resistant. It is a reasonably priced, quality alternative to solid gold.
If you can wear gold, you can wear gold filled without any allergic reaction.
Caring for sterling silver and gold filled items is the same as caring for any precious and semi-precious metal jewellery. Simply keep away from chemicals, clean regularly with mildly sudsy water, rinse well and pat dry with a non-scratching cloth.
