Catherine Mannheim



Ancient jewellery has long been a big influence on Catherine’s work as is nature and the world around her. Her palette consists of subtle textures and reflections of matt high carat gold complimented by carefully chosen
precious stones and beads. The jewellery gradually evolves through the process of making by hand using traditional techniques. The gold is formed by hammering bending and constructing to realise each piece of jewellery.

Catherine is a regular exhibitor at the Goldsmiths’ Fair in London and exhibits throughout the UK and France. Catherine also works to commission.

Catherine's work can be found in the public collections of the V&A, The Goldsmiths' Company, The Crafts Council.
Her work has also appeared in many books on Contemporary Jewellery

“My work is influenced by Greek, Roman and other ancient jewellery but nature is also very important in the shaping of my designs. Each piece is made by hand using traditional techniques.”

Catherine Mannheim


From her studio in Central London, Catherine makes unique jewellery pieces, made by hand using a combination of 18ct yellow and white gold and platinum with carefully chosen precious stones and beads.

“It's a precise and dilligent process using traditional goldsmithing techniques, highly considered and thought through. I tend not to think of myself so much as a jeweller, but a goldsmith. I like to use the subtle colours of the gold to compliment the stone.”
