Paul Finch was born in Stourbridge, West Midlands. He was inspired to make jewellery whilst travelling in Asia and has been working as a self taught designer jeweller for nearly 25 years. He was based in North Cornwall for several years, then relocated to Southern France with his family in 2009. Working alone in the solitude of his rural workshop, Paul draws on his technical abilities to undertake all aspects involved in the fabrication of his work (apart from casting). This results in bold settings, indulgent and interesting pieces with no constraints on design.
Paul uses a variety of innovative techniques to create distinctive ranges of jewellery characterized by elegance & simplicity. He has a love of strong form with few embellishments preferring to contrast colour ansd texture with organic flowing forms that are both durable and comfortable to wear. He creates sculptural pieces in silver and gold combined with diamonds or gemstones in unusual settings.
Paul enjoys working with silver and semi precious stones and also produces a number of items in 18ct gold including commissioned items such as wedding and engagement rings. His contemporary collections feature a wide range of items such as rings, bangles, pendants and earrings. The jewellery is designed with durability and comfort in mind and is complimentary and sensual to the wearer.
