Designer, Maker & Founder
Richard is a sculptor who started making things smaller and smaller, started putting them on people and then realised that was called jewellery. He got an art degree in silversmithing and blacksmithing, then worked as a secondary school art teacher for a bit before going full time into jewellery making in 2009. It started off as whatever he could sell to support his family, but as he developed he began to be trusted with bespoke work by customers and he's been doing this for over a decade now.
He brings a lot of maths and science to his work, and his sense of beauty is very much to do with the delicate strength and engineering in animals, plants and nature, which he tries to recreate in his work.
His main creative source is always the customer and what is meaningful to them. Stoking his own creative fire with the inspirations and ideas of his clients brings enjoyable new artistic challenges.
I commissioned my partner’s engagement ring from Richard Chown and I’m thrilled with the results. The ring is gorgeous and the process was easy and fun. During our consultation Richard sketched the whole ring and designed a beautiful monogram with all the style references I liked in mind. Details he suggested made the ring extra special and he was great at interpreting exactly the vibe I was going for.Richard made a wax model of my ring and sent pictures to me to make a final check before he made it in metal. When I picked it up I was wowed. This has been the coolest thing I’ve ever spent money on and I can totally recommend Richard; he’s such a talented craftsman and his pieces are awesome.
Richard worked with us to create exactly what we wanted - even though we'd started off not knowing what we wanted! He created two beautiful rings in a very short period of time and to the highest possible standard. We couldn't be happier with them.
Richard designed and made my engagement ring and our wedding rings. We couldn’t be happier. The extremely high quality of workmanship and design is clear from the pictures of his pieces but in reality the rings far surpassed our expectations. The service provided by him is very thoughtful and that is much appreciated amidst the chaos and mounting crazy expense of a wedding. I can not recommend Richard enough.
