Wandsworth Creatives: Barbara Yarde
Interested in a job that’s creative? Want to find out more about what’s involved?
Wandsworth is full of creative people working in a diverse range of careers.
Wandsworth Creatives is a series of short films that profile people working in creative careers in the borough of Wandsworth and explores their role, how they got there and what skills you need to succeed.
The series will cover a wide range of creative areas including: Film, Visual Art, Music, Dance, Architecture, Fashion and more and our exciting group of interviewees will pass on advice for next steps and inspire you to get creative.
Our twelfth Wandsworth Creative film features Barbara Yarde, Fine Jeweller and Designer.
Barbara’s travels and interests in intricately detailed artwork and architecture has fuelled her imagination and influenced much of her work and this attention to detail is reflected in all her pieces. Each one is handmade in her studio in Wandsworth using 9ct gold, 18ct gold, sterling silver, precious and semi-precious stones, which she combines with traditional processes such as reticulation and wax carving to create timeless pieces that will be returned to time and time again.
Wandsworth Creatives is part of an ongoing strand of Creative Careers work in the borough and is funded by Creative Wandsworth Cultural Education Partnership. The aim of the films is to increase awareness of a variety of creative career pathways and highlight Wandsworth based workplaces and creative opportunities, inspiring the next generation of creatives.
