Welcome to Anthony Blakeney Jewellery.
I have been making jewellery for more than 25 years, having studied design at Leeds College of Art. Following full time craft studies, I began a period learning the art of diamond setting.
It wasn't until a few years later that my love of design was renewed, and I began designing and selling at Trade Fairs across the country, and abroad.
My work has been sold through outlets including House Of Fraser, Selfridges, Leeds City Art Gallery and several other smaller, privately run art galleries across the U.K.
Although I am known for my classic hand made tension ring design, I like to experiment, and sometimes some of these pieces are turned into finished jewellery, such as the range which I have developed by casting pieces of rose root into silver, and shaping into finished items.
I welcome suggestions for commissions, and I am able to obtain all available gemstones.
The silver I use in my work is recycled, and all my ingredients are ethically sourced.
