I originally trained as a Fine Artist before falling in love with jewellery making whilst travelling around the world in 2010. Upon return I bought a sheet of copper and set to work in my Dads workshop. By Emily became and established business in 2011.
I now work from my workshop in Clerkenwell, London, selling both online and in stockists across the UK. With growing international interest By Emily can now by found in Hong Kong and India.
"Whether it be teatime or gin o'clock, the appropriate adornment is an absolute essential- thus consider designer maker Emily Sidwell, your duchess of artful accessories. The offerings in her By Emily collection are a mixture of poise and playfulness drawing inspiration from beloved childhood stories and English history alike." Fab UK
Intricately handmade collections of jewellery inspired by memories of childhood, English style and history. By incorporating a narrative in each collection, the designs have a unique eccentricity that is antique, quirky, and whimsical.
Each piece has a beautiful illustrative quality and appears to be full of life and character. Working predominantly with silver and gold my adornments are made using the lost wax casting process, each piece is sculpted by hand in soft moulding wax before being cast in precious metal, every item of jewellery made is completely unique.
