Vivienne jones. studio jeweller.

 

My jewellery is predominately sterling silver and gold with precious or semi precious stones. I also utilize pearls, my own hand made resins and occasionally interesting found elements. Im also an artist that enjoys the challenge of working with existing materials or stones and re -working existing pieces for my clients. I'm happy to answer any questions via email .

'I find jewellery an intriguing form of personal expression ,both for the maker and for the individual who wears it. I hope that the pieces I make will be worn and valued and will become meaningful objects in someone's life. It is because of the personal attributes of jewelry that I enjoy working with a client to create a piece for them.' ​vivienne
