Tanith Rouse – Aluminium jewellery

Tanith Rouse – Aluminium jewellery

My name is Tanith Rouse.  I live in Hereford and work from home transforming anodised aluminium into bright, colourful, wearable jewellery.

From a young age I was always fascinated with the construction of jewellery, often taking necklaces apart and re-making them in the way that I wanted them to look.  I loved colourful foil sweet wrappers and would save them up and heat them over a candle and watch the colours change.  This must have been an early introduction to aluminium.

I trained at the Birmingham School of Jewellery, achieving a BA (Hons) in Silversmithing and Jewellery.  I love making jewellery from a variety of materials and particularly enjoy using aluminium because it’s lightweight, versatile and above all, potentially colourful.

I hand dye, paint and print the aluminium and then seal the colour in so that it becomes a permanent part of the metal.  I’m inspired by bright colours and anything that glitters.  My love of the sea is also apparent in much of my work often playing on the colours of green and blue.
