Bauble and Hoop
Bold and gutsy rings to bring out the magnificence in the wearer
Bauble and Hoop is the creation of jewellery designer/maker Victoria Lovell, who will be exhibiting her jewellery at Studio Shards in Fulking on 23rd and 24th November 2018.
Victoria says ”My ﬁrst big creative endeavour was becoming a potter. I am an apprenticed trained potter and have been a sculptor for last 25 years. About 10 years ago I took some evening classes in silver jewellery making and these continued for three years. My love affair with stones started in my childhood, I would collect stones and memorise their names, soon moving on to gemstones. And so I have a wide knowledge base for gemstones built up over the years that comes in very useful when I am choosing and setting stones.
At the beginning of last year I had made the decision to retire from my sculpting and try my hand at making rings. I want to make rings that are statement pieces, that make the wearer feel more conﬁdent and beautiful and that make someone walking by stop and stare. I make my rings on the large size especially for customers who use their hands every day.”
