Tamizan Savill works with transparent enamels on silver. Simple shapes allow emphasis on the lovely qualities of enamel, and the flowing lines of basse-taille engraving.
She makes a range of jewellery for women and men, and more recently small boxes and vessels.
Tamizan started working with silver in 1990, with enamels in 1994, and set up her workshop full-time in 2001. She used to build recording studios for young people, but enamelling is much quieter.
