  • About

    She holds a BA in 3D Design (Silversmithing and Jewellery) from Loughborough University and an MA in Goldsmithing, silversmithing, metalwork and Jewellery from the Royal College Art. Colley's practice-led research explores the fleeting and complex nature of human existence, predominantly using jewellery and objects as modes of expression. Her current research seeks to defamiliarise everyday organic materials, to resemble precious artefacts and objects of value.
