Bio

Master jeweller William Llewellyn Griffiths has over 30 years experience crafting intricate pieces that have an allure of danger, romance, and unholy reverence.
 

Statement

The key theme of my work is centered around the idea of reinvention. Manifesting the creativity and innovation that lie at the heart of my craft, I strive to make my jewellery designs refreshing and bold, using unique forms and patterns to push the boundaries of conventional.

Guided by my own vision and my love for artistic expression, I like to emphasize the fine details of shapes and ornaments, motifs and mechanics of jewellery pieces to capture astounding works of history and architecture, which often serve as an inspiration for my creative visions. Many of my ring designs resemble cathedrals, iterating the gothic architecture style of the 16th century.️

I often draw inspiration from gothic style jewellery, but I also like to incorporate the elements of art déco, baroque, avant-garde, and the florentine aesthetic era. Pioneering the vision of experimental jewellery style, I combine the use of the modern-day technique of 3-D printing together with the much older practice of jewellery making – lost-wax casting.

As a jeweller and artist, I always stay true to my own ideas without following today’s trends, inspiring the wearer to find their unique style while giving them a chance to appreciate the finesse of historical jewellery that takes you back in time, allowing you to experience the aesthetics and atmosphere of that period.
