Vivienne Ridley

British jeweller Vivienne Ridley has worked extensively in design and production since she graduated from Sheffield way back in the days of the 1980s. With a return to more traditional methods of production, her latest collection proudly draws on her years of training, each piece handcrafted from her studio here at Brass Monkeys in Hove. An avid believer and supporter in the resurgence of quality design and production here in the UK she is keen to add to the number of designers with integrity and purpose with a healthy nod to recycling.

This latest collection embodies some of her core passions and interests, a natural magpie, an admirer of both old and new design and never happier when these sit in happy unison. She meticulously sources trinkets from the past, predominantly metal buttons and re-invents their purpose, making an individual hand crafted setting for each piece.

As she works she happily makes up tales for herself as to the history of the items she has found… where it originated, who made it, who bought it, who wore it and even the identity of the owner and the exploits that transpired as they wore them – all conjured up as she sets to work on these limited edition or one off pieces.
