Phoebe Smith is a designer maker based in Brighton, UK. She focuses on making jewellery, predominantly silver rings. Her current work revolves around communicating with the body through adornment. She believes that the weight of her pieces not only empowers the wearer, it also grounds them.
Phoebe Smith has worked with Mount Edgcumbe, a historic listed building located in Cornwall, to create a sculpture which was displayed in their gardens. This piece had to meet a live brief and required communication with the client to make sure it was safe for public interaction and the placement of the piece worked well with their requirements. She has also had work experience with Victoria Sewart at her Contemporary Jewellery Gallery in Plymouth, UK. Developing an understanding of sale and return, and how stockists and jewellery galleries work, she also received training to professionally clean and display jewellery.
