Originally from Yorkshire, Victoria Kelsey studied jewellery at Middlesex University. During her degree, Victoria took advantage of a year out working in industry assisting designers Husam el Odeh, FSAugusta and Fred Butler on their seasonal collections and catwalk pieces. During this year Victoria also travelled to Australia to study jewellery in Perth. These diverse experiences proved extremely valuable and further developed her love of jewellery. Predominantly working in metal, all pieces are created by hand using traditional jewellery techniques. Her debut collection, Precious Grime is inspired by the marks and traces of age left behind on discarded objects at flea markets. Victoria is interested in the uncanny nature of how these dormant objects fall into disrepair altering their original form. Her jewellery explores an exaggerated representation of dust, transforming the subtle dirt into something more precious and beautiful.
