Ebba Goring has been pioneering her technique of working with casting textiles since graduating in 2009 with a BDES (hons) in Jewellery and Metal Design from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Dundee.
Ebba works from her studio/ showroom in an architect restored railway platform building on the Fife Coast of Scotland. Inspired by a love of traditional needlework and a passion to translate textile skills handed down through generations into a new material – preserving them forever. “The simple repetition of a stitch, like double crochet, can be inspiration in itself — but I am also fascinated by historic jewellery, costume and textile motifs, especially from the Jacobean and Elizabethan eras for my latest collections.” Ebba stitches her designs in minute delicate cotton stitch and crochet then casts in solid precious metal. “I enjoy this sort of alchemy process, the organic undulating stitches are captured in metal and transformed into solid precious jewels. The finished pieces have an almost ancient treasure look to them, especially the gold pieces studded with precious gemstones.” All pieces are hand-finished in our studio and hallmarked at the Edinburgh Assay Office.
