JEW­ELLER Louise Sant is ex­hibit­ing her lat­est work in time for Christ­mas at Artspace in Wood­bridge.

Louise de­signs and cre­ates unique pieces of jew­ellery in­spired by na­ture, par­tic­u­larly marine sub­jects. For 37 years, she has sold through stores, gal­leries and ex­hi­bi­tions, in the UK and abroad, col­lab­o­rat­ing with a daz­zling and di­verse ar­ray of part­ners from Lib­erty, Har­rods, Fort­num and Ma­son, Kew Gar­dens, Royal Pav­il­ion Brighton and De Beers. Pieces de­signed by Louise can be found in the V&A Mu­seum and the Na­tional Mu­seum of Scot­land. For the past eight years she sold through Sant Stu­dio in Wood­bridge.

Orig­i­nally from Lon­don, Louise es­tab­lished her stu­dio in Alde­burgh in 2005. Her dis­tinc­tive work – con­tem­po­rary with a clas­sic twist – has cap­tured a broad and loyal fol­low­ing. She works in sil­ver and gold, hand­made or cast from her orig­i­nals, to cre­ate fem­i­nine, wear­able pieces, that re­flect her love of colour through beau­ti­ful fresh water pearls and hand­picked gem­stones. Her hand fin­ishes give each piece its own tex­tu­ral qual­ity. You can see more of her work at www.louis­esant.co.uk

Louise will be show­ing her new work in an ex­hi­bi­tion with her artist sis­ter, Claire Fried, (oils), and her mother, Au­drey Sant, (pas­tels) at Artspace, a space which can be hired by the week by in­di­vid­ual artists or art groups.

This month you can also see the work of painter Kate Giles (De­cem­ber 4-10). Kate spent much of her life liv­ing and work­ing in East Anglia, in Suf­folk un­til a few years ago and then back in Nor­folk where she grew up. Her work is con­cen­trates on the elu­sive yet dis­tinct spirit of place.

From De­cem­ber 11-17 Artspace hosts re­cent works by four very dif­fer­ent artists, Sarah Bad­don Price, Kate Fel­ton, Claire Fried, and Emma Green.

Un­til Novem­ber 25 you can catch Ip­swich Art So­ci­ety, which for the first time in its his­tory is stag­ing an ex­hi­bi­tion of small works out­side Ip­swich. This ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tures paint­ings, sculp­tures and prints, pro­duced by mem­bers of the so­ci­ety. It’s a great op­por­tu­nity to buy orig­i­nal art work pro­duced by pro­fes­sional artists at com­pet­i­tive prices just be­fore Christ­mas.

The Ip­swich Art So­ci­ety, es­tab­lished in 1874, has a rich her­itage of pro­mot­ing the vis­ual arts in Ip­swich with mem­ber­ship in­clud­ing fa­mous East Anglian artists such as Harry Becker, Colin Moss, Sir Al­fred Mun­nings, Leonard Squir­rell, Ed­ward Seago and Anna Airy.
