For many years I worked in some of the most exciting publishing houses, travelling and meeting all sorts of creative people. A few more years passed and despite enjoying the publishing world I knew I wanted to do something more creative and hands on so started looking at other possibilities. I’m degree educated but everything I’ve learnt within the art and jewellery world has been through my Dad, family, friends, artists, makers and other jewellers. Quite simply, I have learnt on the job by some very kind and talented people. Over time we have technically improved and expanded but fundamental to Very Colourful Jewellery is a pure and genuine passion to create beautiful, colourful pieces of wearable art that are a pleasure to wear and as individual as their owners. I endeavour to maintain their spontaneous appeal by not working to any preconceived ideas or particular pattern, although there are many influences of course. This impulsive style with the bright, bold designs and experimenting with colour is fundamental to my work. By their painterly nature and visible brushstrokes every piece keeps them united as a brand and it’s philosophy; unique – stylish – wearable art.
