After doing a foundation course in Fine Art, Will went on to do an Honours Degree in sculpture at Canterbury College of Art and Design. He became interested in jewellery-making after a period of travel across East and South Africa. After completing a diamond setting course at the London Guildhall University, Will set up his jewellery making business which has been going for approximately 22 years.
Will’s unique style of jewellery-making is directly influenced by his background in fine art sculpture.
Working from his studio in Suffolk, Will creates his own original and beautiful collections of jewellery in silver, gold and platinum, incorporating precious and semi-precious stones. He also produces sculptures in differing mediums including bronze. Will’s eclectic and extensive bespoke and private commission work include designing collections for the fashion company YMC, making Head Girl brooches for Ipswich High School and Manchester High School and necklaces for the Old Girls Association at New Hall School.
Celebrity clients include Bono and Adam Clayton of the band U2 and Shirley Manson the lead singer of the band Garbage has been photographed wearing one of his Zip Necklaces. Clare Balding has recently sported one of Will’s classic Drum Rings in a photo shoot for Women and Home. His sculpture commissions have included several bronze portraiture heads of leading figures and captains of industry and a bronze sculpture for The Department of Education and Skills.
Commissions are welcome.
