Cone Brooch 2015
Amanda Doughty designs & makes contemporary jewellery for men and women.

Well known for her geometric, architectural inspired work using bold forms and hidden precious stones, Amanda sells through a small number of shows in the UK, although works mainly to commission.

Amanda is also a founding member of Pop Up Maker Store. We launched our first event in Brighton in 2017 and are looking for host partners for 2018.

She lives and works in Brighton UK, having set up her business at Cockpit Arts, Holborn, London in the early 1990’s. A&C Black published Amanda’s book ‘Bangles & Bracelets’ in 2009.

Commissioning Work

Most of Amanda’s work is made to private commission. Commissioning handmade work allows the client to be part of the design process and makes the piece extra special as a result; wedding rings are a good example of this, although clients often commission bangles for special occasions and cufflinks for the men.

Amanda works with a range of materials including platinum, 18ct & 9ct gold, silver, diamonds and other precious stones.

Here is a few things to bear in mind:

  • Amanda’s work is simple & bold; it’s good to think about her style to make sure it suits your commission.
  • Its always good to do your research and find out what you like or what the person you are commissioning for likes. The internet can be a good way to do this.
  • She uses reputable diamond and precious stone dealers. Stones can be certificated if required.
  • Amanda often makes samples, especially for rings to get a feel for how they will look and feel to wear.

All work is hallmarked by the London Assay Office.

Commissions typically take up to 12 weeks to completion.

Amanda will use her  expertise to guide you through the process and although she sells her work through a small number of outlets, most of her work is made to order.
