My Story

My name is Chloe Henderson.

I’m from Edinburgh, Scotland and I currently live in Birmingham, England where I have just graduated with a Master of Arts Degree in Jewellery and Related Products at the Birmingham School of Jewellery.

I previously trained as a jeweller at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, and graduated with a Bachelors of Design Honours in 2014.

The work I have developed throughout my MA has centred around expanding the jewellery object to create Chimeric human-animal hybrid costumes on a large scale. These pieces, with their human actors, form characters who capture ridiculous, surreal, fantastical stories that are told through filmed mockumentaries.

I am greatly inspired by nerd culture, mythological creatures, and anything a little bit fantastical. My illustrative drawings are akin to the zentangle style, and this is also reflected in my etched style metalwork. I use the patterns to create narratives, and explore visual storytelling through illustrations and wearable art.

In my spare time I tame unicorns and swim with mermaids….
