Biography / Artist statement
Originally from Germany, Urban Faerie has been residing in London for many moons. Urban Faerie re-discovered her childhood love for arts and crafts through her long-term partner and husband, who is a well-established artist in Camden Lock market. In 2013 Urban Faerie joined forces with Killer Bunny (https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/KillerBunnyCreations) to create various jewellery collections that appeal to the wondrous and unusual type. The original jewellery designs were based on Steampunk, curiosities and horror, and have been quite popular at film and comic conventions across the UK.
Urban Faerie has been keen to further develop her skills and learn the true craftsmanship of jewellery making. Hence, she has been studying jewellery making part-time at college since 2015. She has also had the amazing opportunity to work as an assistant for a busy contemporary jewellery studio in Hatton Garden for over one year. Entering into the world of jewellery making has been a wonderful experience for Urban Faerie. It has provided a healthy balance to her part-time role as a social worker in one of London’s deprived areas.
