Ruth Tomlinson Bio
"I am driven by my passion for the earth's treasures; the magic of minutiae, tiny intricacies, small imperfections, and the individual’s search for preciousness. I seek out the unconventional beauty within and this fuels my creativity, whether in the rarity of material or a curiosity in nature."
Ruth Tomlinson's inspiration is drawn from both the mysteries of historical jewels and the ephemerality of nature's life cycles from birth to decay.
Working with precious materials is a privilege for Ruth Tomlinson, and she strives to evoke a sense of wonder around the work; a modern British classic of the future, handcrafted and ready to be filled with its own story—throughout our lifetime and generations to come.
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 jewelry collections. She is considered by industry experts as one of the leading influences in the current generation of UK jewelry designers, and her unique designs and luxuriously wearable adornments are conceived with the notion of being treasured forever.
