Ritual Studio is a very small brand making one-off brass and silver jewellery, sometimes adding leather, using the ancient method of lost wax casting which creates organic and bodily shapes.

Madeleine’s work combines the subtly disparate fields of folk art and postmodernism. She balances this contrast by mixing traditional techniques, such as embroidery, and contemporary styles. The result is art that feels playful yet classic. She uses a range of media including lino, screen printing and appliqué but embroidery is her specialism. All works are created and manufactured in her studio in Cornwall, using sustainable production methods
