ANNE WALKER From Edinburgh, by way of Aberdeen to Glasgow, I am a Jeweller with a history.
I chose the name heist as it represents the skills I have stolen from my previous career as an Architect.
Happy working at the bench, I also derive satisfaction from interpreting my designs and fine tuning details using CAD and 3D printing technology. I am developing my skills by exploring the opportunities that scripting and panelling could offer alongside stone setting.
Visual and verbal stimuli, my environment and my everyday thoughts spark a constant process of design evolution within my imagination.
I love to draw, to sketch and develop my ideas; I am rarely found without sketchbook, pen and pencil. I enjoy the satisfaction derived through the creation of a finished piece from an initial concept spark. To know that the pleasure the wearer has with a particular piece is something I have a hand in, is rewarding.
In my final year at Glasgow Kelvin College, Scotland, studying B.Des in Jewellery Design with Technology, I hope you find my jewellery interesting, edgy and covetable.
