Jewellery Designer and Goldsmith

Jake Wells

Being a jewellery designer allows me to bring together my passion for the natural world and my experiences working as a design engineer in the space industry. Growing up in the English countryside, surrounded by the forms, textures and patterns of nature is a huge source of inspiration. Working on spacecrafts has grounded me in precision engineering and industrial processes that inform my desire to ‘play’ with natural materials. I am at my happiest and most creative when hand-crafting objects that experiment with making these two worlds collide.
