Sharon Ford (Enameled Beads)

  • based in Cambridge where she has two studios, one for hot work and one for cold restoration (gold leafing and stringing).
  • worked as a restorer for over 30 years for the Arts market.
  • also an expert in conservation and preservation of items too fragile for conventional restoration, using both traditional and modern techniques.

Enamelling has come to be Sharon’s overriding interest with a lot of experimental work being done in bead colours and formation. Inspiration comes from experimenting and finding something wonderful that can be used in the making of beautiful jewellery – something which students discover a passion for.

Sharon has taken over the Enameled Beads courses from the now-retied Janet Notman.

Higham is one of only a handful of  places offering residential Enameled Beading courses now, as genuine expert Tutors are very rare and we are doing our best to ensure these skills are passed on.
