HEIDI VON DER GRATHEN : PORT PERRY
 
Hand-crafted, organic inspired elements combined with clean lines and unique finishes give Heidi's jewellery a chic and contemporary edge. The combination of fine quality materials and sculptural forms results in work with a strong sense of femininity. These are timeless pieces that describe style rather than fashion and can be worn for years. Powerful beauty: Here is jewellery designed for women that are comfortable with themselves and enjoy creating their own unique and personal statement.





AUDREY MORGAN: PETERBOROUGH
 
A love of shiny things inspired Audrey Morgan to name her hand-made jewellery practice "Little Magpie" but it is the wonder of nature that inspires her creations. Awestruck by what nature creates, she celebrates its colours, textures, even its flaws, with her stone, sterling silver and copper jewellery.  Her etched and textured silver and copper pieces remind us of nature's strength, beauty and asymmetry.  For many years META4 has been proud to present an ever-evolving selection of Audrey's work.
