TGF Staff Introductions: Lili Murphy-Johnson

Name: Lili Murphy-Johnson

Title: Workshop Manager

Time at TGF:
5 years! Working with the team in the Ganton street basement was so much fun, all the friends I have made here and gotten to work with over the years would have to be my main highlight. I love working with the amazing group of women in the Shoreditch workshop now, they make every day here inspiring and fun.

First TGF piece:
The Sixx Skull Ring.

Favourite TGF piece:
I think either the Beaded Eye Ring or the Eye Pendant, although I also really like the Evil Bastard Ring.

Tell us a little bit about your own jewellery work:
My most recent collection is made up of big abstract colourfully enamelled gold and silver rings. I also make gemstone rings that look like clitorises, bangles and chokers that look like orthodontic braces, and jewellery about menstruation!
