Welcome to Redhead Arts
My name is Vienna Forrester. I am a multi-discipline artist from Kingston upon Hull, East Yorkshire, England. These are my jewellery pages.
I came up with the idea of creating fractal jewellery by accident. It occurred to me that my large wall works would lend themselves well to being shrunk down and worn as a piece of jewellery. I created a few pieces for my own personal use but after receiving many compliments about them and enquiries as to where they came from, it seemed a logical step to venture into production and launched my jewellery range as the Redhead Arts brand in 2013.
Each piece is hand made in my home workshop by myself ensuring the highest quality and attention to detail.
For more information about me, my other art or what fractal art is, or for more information about where to see my larger works, please visit the Vienna Forrester Portal.
Just in case you were wondering, the image on the front page of this site is a piece from my first solo fractal art exhibition which was based on Orkney and Shetland and is entitled, 'A Memory of Birds'.
My fractal art jewellery starts off as a normal fractal artwork using my personal method of creation. The art is then resized to suit the particular piece of jewellery for which it is intended. This is then backed with various types of metal leaf ranging from gold to silver, palladium or aluminium and set behind glass or acrylic resin. I hand craft each piece of jewellery and each can be regarded as a portable art work as well as a unique and beautiful piece of jewellery. No two pieces are ever completely the same.
My range of jewellery includes pendant necklaces, bracelets, cufflinks, ear-rings and ear studs. There are currently two different variations of jewellery in my range. My hallmarked sterling silver range has my fractal artwork set behind glass in a silver setting, with my acrylic resin pieces set in acrylic resin on shaped metal back plates of copper, aluminium or silver. My silver pieces are hallmarked by the London Assay Office, with my unique makers mark 'VF' and are only available at certain retail outlets.
Pendants are available with a range of neck cords including leather thong, vegan-friendly faux-leather twisted thong and sterling silver snake chain. Ear rings are hung on sterling silver or rose gold filled ear wires but hypo-allergenic surgical steel hangers are available on request.
My sterling silver and acrylic pieces are all individually named.

If you have purchased a piece of my acrylic or glass jewellery, care should be taken over storage when not being worn to avoid accidental abrasion of the surface. I recommend storing in the original presentation box or, if not available, cotton wool or similar non-abrasive material. A lint-free cloth soaked in a weak soapy water mix will be sufficient to clean the surface. If you use a proprietary cleaning substance, please take care and heed all allergy and safety warnings provided by the manufacturer of the cleaning product. Be sure you have rinsed off any cleaning substance used. Submersion in water is not recommended.
If you have a problem or need further advice, including repair or refinishing your acrylic jewellery please contact me via the contact form on this site, with your query.
