We’re a little slow to start, but we’re taking up the #MeetTheMakerWeek challenge set by Joanne Hawker.
So, here’s Jude, the super-duper maker of everything FORM London!
Jude works from her home studio (garage) in Surrey where she lives with a wonderful hairy man called Adam and their dog Millie.
How did Jude end up with her dream job of designing and making jewellery? It's been a bit of a winding road. Jude discovered her passion for making at a young age. Her father was a keen woodworker and passed on his love of design. She studied Jewellery Design at Central St Martins but ended up working to pay the rent after uni. For a while, Jude was in danger of losing touch with her creative beginnings until she ended up teaching art at a college in North London.
Finally! She’d found a job where she could learn more skills and play with new materials. It's here that Jude gets her hands on a laser cutter for the first time. She loved being in a creative environment, and helping others to create their pieces but missed doing something for herself.
Fast forward a few years and Jude finally sets up her own business with friends (Alice & Amber). From working with Amber & Alice, Jude built the confidence she didn't have straight out of uni. So, with Jude’s incredible design talents it was a natural progression for us to work on creating a jewellery brand together.
FORM London is born!
