William Llewellyn Griffiths

Published: 29.05.2018


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


I am a self-professed renegade inventor, an unconventional creator - having largely taught myself through my own curiosities and experiments, I have through the years invented my own method of fabrication. I am a practicing contemporary jeweller, using modern technologies alongside ancient techniques to tailor my own specific method of making. I am greatly influenced by gothic revival architecture, the grandeur of medieval buildings and the unapologetic opulence of the rococo movement. I have a fascination with locking mechanisms, forever intrigued by the precision and with objects that are beautifully decorative yet serve a purpose. My jewellery is a representation of that intrigue – pieces that adorn the wearer and have purpose; whether that purpose is to transcend convention, represent a grand gesture, to secure a hidden treasure within a delicate secret chamber or be a token for unconditional love.
