Alexandra Myles graduated from Glasgow School Of Art in 2017 with a BA(Hons) degree in Silversmithing and Jewellery Design.
Alexandra’s work is influenced by an interest in armour and weaponry. She enjoys finding unique ways in which she can incorporate certain aspects into both her Jewellery and Silversmithing. She is currently exploring the use of armour and weapons in nature by looking at the protective defence mechanisms of animals and plant life.
Alexandra is interested in using contrasting elements in her work such as combining rigid geometric forms and designs with more organic, less controlled elements. The function of her work is important and often informs the design and aesthetic. Exploring and learning to work with different techniques, materials, concepts and designs is important to Alexandra and she enjoys having a variety of work and styles
