Peculiar Vintage Jewellery's creative force is British designer Stef Warde who debuted her first collection 'Curio' influenced by her love of vintage and retro fashion. She spent her formative years in lively Camden Town, London, running the original flagship store of formidable vintage emporium, Rokit Vintage.
Stef's passion is rooted in the arts, with a Fine Art & Textiles background and degree in Fashion & Illustration (The Surrey Institute of Art & Design), she found herself falling back in love with artisan life whilst on leave from Rokit, travelling South America. On her return she immediately enrolled to learn Silversmithing & Design at Sir John Cass, Metropolitan University London for 2 years, and found an organic way to fuse all her creative skills together, thus Peculiar Vintage was borne. She works with Silver, Gold, Palladium, Platinum and stone-sets ethically sourced gemstones and diamonds. Her distinctive style is overtly hand-hewn, soulful, with considered marks and weathering, giving the perfect imperfection to each collection.
