Ruth Tomlinson

Ethereal fine jewellery imbued with an otherworldly sense of a bygone era

Biography

I am driven by my passion for the earths treasures; the magic of minutiae, tiny intricacies, small imperfections, and the individual’s search for preciousness.

Ruth seeks out the unconventional beauty within and this fuels her creativity, whether in the rarity of material or a curiosity in nature.

Since graduating with an MA from London’s Royal College of Art in 2005, Ruth continues to investigate the unpredictable and push boundaries of perceived preciousness in her critically acclaimed jewellery collections. She is considered by industry experts as one of the leading influences in the current generation of UK jewellery designers, and her unique designs and luxuriously wearable adornments are conceived with the notion of being treasured forever.

"My inspiration is drawn from both the mysteries of historical jewels and the ephemerality of natures life cycles from birth to decay. My work is often a response to my immediate environment, whether a fleeting moment on a train in India or being totally immersed in a single jewel at a local museum. My eyes are wide open to new discoveries and I love to observe and absorb my surroundings."
