Zoe Ruth Designs
In this fast-paced world it is important to slow down, to take time to look around us and appreciate the small wonders in the world we find ourselves in. I endeavour to capture the beauty of bark from a woodland walk, the colourful mix of flowers from a neighbour's garden, the textures and patterns from a walk about town.
My home studio is situated on the Northamptonshire and Leicestershire boarder, and I am very lucky to have such inspirational countryside and architectural towns around me. I enjoy creating my jewellery for people who love skilled handmade pieces, who appreciate the time and care I put into each piece, and who want to own something they can wear time and time again for many years.
I started Zoe Ruth Designs in 2012 when my constant love for art and design had narrowed itself into a desire to work with silver and copper to create simple yet beautiful jewellery. It was as I ventured down this path of learning new skills through books, videos and generally having a play that I learnt my Granddad had dabbled in silversmithing and a box of his tools was unearthed from a garden shed. I still use and treasure these tools using some of them to design and create the jewellery you buy from me today.
