Meet the Team
It's long overdue that we introduce you to the team behind our jewels! We're a group of hard-working, independent women passionate about what we do. We're all based at the Ruth Tomlinson atelier in Hatton Garden, London's historic jewellery district, and we each play an important role in providing a special and unique experience to our customers.
Ruth (standing in the doorway, at the bottom) heads up our team, the creative force behind her eponymous brand, she spends much of her time at the jewellery bench working on new design prototypes and bespoke customer commissions. Each and every one of our jewels has been designed by Ruth (in tiny detail!) and created in-house. She is a designer-maker, so each piece comes to life at the bench rather than on paper/on a screen, allowing for adaption and development of design during the making process, ensuring the creation has been considered from every angle along the way.
Our workshop team are on the balcony (from left to right): Belle, Sarah, Ciara and Jen are all skilled fine jewellery bench workers. Belle is responsible for all the fine metal work that is involved in creating our jewels. Sarah heads up the busy workshop team and ensures the smooth running of our production processes from assisting Ruth with stone sourcing, to liaising with our suppliers, and ensuring all our jewels are made to the highest standard. Ciara has been part of the team for many years, now she splits her time between crafting our jewels and growing her own fine jewellery brand. Jen splits her time between supporting Belle on the fine metal work, and Sarah with the workshop admin.
Saffiah (far left, at the bottom) manages our studio, assists the team in maintaining an efficient and organised work space and oversees our internal systems. Abbey (next to Saffiah) looks after our wholesale accounts and assists with ensuring our website is up to date. Kate (to the right of Abbey) heads up our sales and marketing, looks after our website, and manages operations. Olivia (far right) and Jo (next to Olivia) together form our retail team, they deal with all our retail sales enquiries, client appointments and customer relations, while Jo is also responsible for making sure your jewellery purchases reach you whether you're around the corner from us or across the oceans in a different time zone.
We like to think that together we're not only providing our customers with a special and unique experience, but also pushing boundaries in providing an alternative to mainstream, commercial fine jewellery with Ruth's beautiful, creative imaginings.
