Harry Forster-Stringer

Harry Forster-Stringer is a Goldsmith and Enameller. Having spent part of his childhood in Pakistan he has a vivid memory of visiting a jewellery workshop with his father who was commissioning a ring for his mother. This started a fascination with jewellery which led to Harry starting as an apprentice in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter aged 16. In 1994 Harry set up his own workshop in Nottingham and has been producing fine jewellery since then. In recent years Harry has been focused on refining his enamelling skills and thanks to a scholarship from QEST was able to undertake a course of one-to-one tutelage with master enameller Phil Barnes. Now, the ancient and incredibly complex art of enamelling forms the focus of Harry’s work as he continues to create larger and more intricate pieces.
