Handmade in Suffolk
How it all began ...
Will Bishop Jewellery Design was established 21 years ago by husband and wife Will and Catherine. Having originally trained as a sculptor, Will became interested in jewellery-making after a period of travel across East and South Africa where “everywhere you go they are making jewellery out of anything that comes to hand”. He was taught the basics by Catherine who had been studying jewellery making and, after completing a diamond setting course at The London Guildhall University, Will set up his business. Originally working out of their garden flat in north London, they quickly established themselves. Through distributors including the Fashion Company YMC, Will’s work was sold in many boutiques and shops including Barneys New York and Liberty. He has had some very interesting commissions, including designing and making rings for Bono and Adam Clayton of U2.
Will is now based in sunny Suffolk and working from his picturesque studio he creates his own original and beautiful collections of jewellery in Silver, Gold and Platinum, incorporating precious and semi-precious stones.
Due to his training in sculpture Will has been able to turn his hand to many unusual commissions, from insects and flowers, a praying mantis brooch designed for the lapel of a top city lawyer to an objet d’art gold leopard with emerald eyes. Will’s fluid style and eccletic mix of influences, ethnic and Byzantine jewellery and his particular focus on surface texture make his jewellery very appealing to the eye, each piece being tactile and very desirable.
In addition to this Will is adept at remodelling old, unworn, often inherited jewellery; transforming it into beautiful new pieces using the same materials and retaining the sentimental value.
