GONZO is a British jewellery studio from Abigail Asher.

After receiving a First Class Bachelor of Arts at the Manchester School Of Art and completing a postgraduate residency for Jewellers and Silversmiths at the Bishopsland Educational Trust, she is a current member of the Starter Studio Programme at the Yorkshire Art-Space, Sheffield. 

With a background in textiles and three-dimensional design, abigail takes her inspiration from an eclectic mix of indulgent
renaissance artworks and bold, utilitarian objects of the 

everyday. Further influenced by distinctions of social class and

the integration of these opposing cultures, Abigail designs and hand

makes jewellery to compliment the beauty and constraints of the human condition.
