Designer Jewellery by Bill Skinner
A unique and beautifully crafted range of fashion jewellery designed and carved by Bill in his UK studio. The collection draws inspiration from a unique heritage and a history spanning over thirty years in the industry.
Bill Skinner studied at Sir John Cass College of art and graduated in 1965. He worked for a number of companies in London's famous Hatton Garden area, where he learnt and discovered a gift for pattern making. Soon, he became known as a craftsman and designer of note and began working freelance, for amongst others: Asprey, Garrards and Van Cleef and Arpels.
During the 1980s with his work attracting critical acclaim Bill began working with Butler and Wilson and Vivienne Westwood, and so began a long association with the world of fashion jewellery, that continues to this day. Bill's work grew progressively throughout the 90s into a thriving international business, covering a wide range of jewellery for many of the world's best known brands and included a number of Royal commissions.
Drawing inspiration from his own unique history, Bill decided in January 2012, to launch his own jewellery range. His debut collection was a fittingly distinctive and truly stunning first offering, each piece hand carved by him and his team in their UK studio.
