jewellery and modern quilting
Silver jewellery using pearls, semi precious stones and crystals. Modern Quilts: using bold colours designing with positive and negative space.

Weaving and bobbin lace were early passions but in the last few years I have been inspired to explore colour and texture in patchwork and quilting. I soon tired of using printed fabrics and moved towards what is known as Modern Quilting. Hard to define but Modern Quilters tend to experiment, often taking a traditional block or pattern and experiment to make something fresh. Like many Modern Quilters I love using plain or solid colours and I will improvise from a starting point until I achieve my vision.  Sometimes I include quite contemporary prints and play around with positive and negative space. I love geometric designs and the work of Bridget Riley. Modern Quilts are the updating of classic designs for the 21st Century. 

My second passion in life is making jewellery. I love pearls, Swarovski crystals and semi precious stones. I only make earrings and necklaces that I would like to wear myself. Classic, unfussy pieces that can be worn day or night. Generally I work with sterling silver but on occasion, gold too. 

I am proud to be membership secretary for COS and also a member and membership secretary/treasurer for the ERTF (Eastern Region Textiles Forum). This is a group of textiles artists throughout the East of England who aim to bring textiles into the 21st century. I am an active member of Cambridge Quilters and recently started to blog about my creative work.  marioncurtis.blogspot.co.uk
